Category: Breads

 Ingredients List

  • 1 tb Active dry yeast
  • 2 1/2 c Warm water
  • 2 1/2 c White flour, preferably
  • -unbleached


Let yeast dissolve in 1/2 cup warm water in a pottery or glass bowl, then
stir in flour and 2 cups warm water; mix well. Pour into plastic, glass, or
crockery container, cover, and let stand 3-5 days in a warm place - near
but not directly over the stove pilot light is a good choice.

When the mixture is ready to use, it may be stabilized by being kept in the
refrigerator. When the liquid rises to the top, mix gently with a fork to
blend before using.

Feed the starter every 5 days by mixing in 1/2 cup flour and 1/3 cup warm

Each time the starter is used, reserve at least 1 cup, replacing the amount
you have taken out with equal amounts of flour and water.
