Making Sourdough Starter
These are the ingredients you will need:
2 cups flour
3 Tbs. sugar
1 Tbs. yeast
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups warm water
Combine the flour and sugar. Mix together well.
Add the yeast, salt and warm water. Mix together well.
Place a cloth over the bowl. Let set out at room temperature.
To keep the starter going replace what you use with equal amounts of flour and water. Stir.
This is what it will look like when it is activated.
Let your starter set 48 hours. You may use it after this time. It may be used in recipes in place of yeast or leavening, or along with it.
Note: You may also keep your starter in the fridge as opposed to on the counter if you prefer.
