How to make it

  • Soften 1 package active dry yeast in 1 quart lukewarm water in a large crock or bowl. Add 2 Tbs sugar and 4 cups all-purpose flour. Beat to mix. Cover with a towel and place in a warm place to sour for 2 to 4 days. After mixture has reached desired sourness, keep in the refrigerator.
  • If starter is not used often, stir flour and water into it every 10 days to keep it fresh and active.
