starting sourdough


for quite some time now, i have wanted to make a sourdough starter. after doing some research online and in a few bread books i have i found some easy instructions and tonight got things going.

i now have to feed it everyday for the next 5 ish, and then hopefully i will have a nice yeasty ‘mother’ as i believe its called!.

i had always understood it was just a flour/water concoction to get things going capturing organisms from the air, but came across recipes that had yoghurt and apple in the first day starter.

i hope to photograph progress over the next week!. (although i may not show the first bread made, as my history of making bread is laughable!!)

if you make a starter, what do you use/do?
