My Starter had a pretty ugly brownish liquidy ‘stuff’ on top this morning — but that’s what we want! It’s starting to smell ‘sourdough-ish’ too– we’re makin’ progress!
Today is much like Day 3…only today I thought I’d be bold and use……….white / wheat flour!
Get a clean jar out (I am using a gallon sized glass jar)and a wooden spoon or spatula. Mix 1 cup of flour and 1 Cup of water, mix it really well and then dump in the contents from your original jar, stir, cover with your cheesecloth and yes, you guessed it….let it sit in a warm spot for another 24 hours!
Now– tomorrow is Sabbath, so my starter will take a rest too. We’ll pick this up Sunday– see you then!
