We are almost done making our starter–soon we’ll be making BREAD! I lovvvvve sourdough bread– yum!
Nothing too different from the last couple days–my starter smells very sourdough-ish, had a fair amount of bubbles and had a bit of clear liquid around the top (about a tablespoon or so?) I just dumped that off and gave it a good stir, and proceeded with the daily process:
Get a clean jar out (I am using a gallon sized glass jar and a wooden spoon or spatula. Today I am going to thicken my starter a bit and add double the flour, to water ratio. You can add equal parts water/flour, I just wouldn’t go MORE than 1 cup each.
Mix 1 cup of flour (today I used an organic white/wheat flour) and 1/2 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!
Make sure you have your glass or stoneware baking pans ready, next we make BREAD–yeeHAW!
