Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups plain organic flour
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm water

Instructions

  1. Mix together well. Transfer to a container and cover with an item that will allow the wild yeast to breathe.
  2. Store in a warm-ish place. Every 24 hours you're going to feed your starter. To feed your starter, first, remove half of your starter. You can use this half to bake with, throw it away or give it to someone else who dreams of baking sourdough.
  3. Once that is removed, add 1/2 cup water, and 3/4 cups flours and mix together. Then cover and store again.
  4. Feed your starter like this for about a week or so, every 24 hours. After 7 days (it might take longer) you might start to see a lot of activity. Then you can transfer your starter to the fridge to only feed once a week.
