  • yay! i have tried so hard to get SOMEONE interested in sourdough starter! you are the first bite ive had! here is a great recipe. pretty easy.

    1 2-oz cake yeast or 3 1/4 oz packets dry yeast
    4 cups warm water
    2 tbsp sugar
    4 cups all purpose flour
    1 raw potato, peeled and quartered

    dissolve yeast in warm water. add sugar, flour and potato. mix in crock (or glass bowl) and let rise until very light and slighty aged.
    to remix starter, add 1 cup of warm water, 2 tsp sugar and the amount of flour to mix to the consistancy of first starter. set aside until biscuit time again. mever add yeast after the first time, but keep raw potato in as food for the starter. for best results, use daily. store in refrigerator.

    if this is too vague,and you need more info, let me know. this is pretty easy, and really good. i know a lady who started her sourdough 20 years ago, and shes still using it.
