Sourdough Scratch Start

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 106


1 cup whole milk
1 cup flour


Put the cup of milk on the counter over night and be sure to cover with a light cloth. True sourdough starter will not have any commercial yeast in it. Stir in the flour and cover again. Let the mix set a few hours and you will see the spores begin to form Spores formed by the yeast are like bees at a honey hive. If you wait long enough, they will show up. Do not use a metal container or metal spoon to stir. Keep in a warm place for a few days, after this you can store in a cool place, but be sure to cover tightly. Allow mixture to warm to room temperature before using. Replace the amount of starter used with a equal amount of flour and milk mixture to keep your starter going. If you use 1 cup of starter, mix ½ cup milk and ½ cup flour to make 1 cup replacement.
