“This is your basic Sour Dough bread starter to be used over and over again. Look for the sour dough bread recipe to make use of this starter. There are two ways to make sour dough starter one without yeast where you feed the starter daily and this recipe where you just let the yeast do the work and let it sit for 3 or 4 days. Be sure that you clean the jar well before putting the saved starter back in it.”

Directions

  1. Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water, rest for ten minutes.
  2. Mix in flour, sugar& remaining water.
  3. Allow to stand, loosely covered, in a warm place for 3 or 4 days. Use a large (preferably ceramic) bowl as it will rise considerably.
  4. Every time the batter is used to make a product set aside 1 cup to be used as a"starter" for another batch.
  5. Keep covered in the fridge (a pint jar works nicely).
  6. To make it into a basic batter again, add another 2 cups flour& 2 cups warm water and allow to stand at room temp overnight It is now ready to use, but again reserve a cup of the starter.
