Sourdough Starter

Sourdough Starter
I’m going to make some sourdough bread ~ this was my thought over a week ago! Now that my Sourdough Starter is 9 days old, it’s ready… and I’m more than ready to make some bread!
Stirring the Sourdough Starter

Here’s the recipe for the starter, in case you want to make your own Sourdough bread next week.

Bread recipes will be posted soon. Now I’m going to get started baking!  😉

1 Tbsp Dry Active Yeast
2 1/2 cups warm Water (110 degrees)
2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 Tbsp Sugar

Soften the yeast in 1/2 cup of the warm water for about 5 minutes.
Stir in the remaining 2 cups of water, flour and sugar. Beat until smooth.
Cover with cheesecloth and allow to sit at room temperature for 5 to 10 days. Stir 2 to 3 times daily.
After 10 days cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Most recipes will call for 1 cup of Sourdough Starter, so you will have some left over. You can keep your starter going by adding 1 cup of water, 1 cup of all-purpose flour, and 1 teaspoon of sugar to the remainder. Cover with cheesecloth and let it stand at room temperature until it is bubbly (1 to 2 days). Then cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

If you do not use the Starter within 10 days, add 1 teaspoon of sugar, stir and continue to refrigerate. Add sugar every 10 days.
