Directions

  1. Combine flour, water and yeast in a warm bowl.
  2. Use a wooden or plastic spoon to stir mixture till smooth.
  3. Cover the container with plastic wrap and place it in a warm, draft-free area for 36-48 hours; your starter should be slightly bubbly and give off a delicious sour, yeasty, aroma.
  4. Its consistency will be that of light pancake batter.
  5. Cover the sourdough container and put it to rest in the fridge.
  6. I use a Mason Jar.
