DIY Sourdough Starter: Embrace The Bread-Baking Craze Sweeping The Nation


Welcome to the world of sourdough! Learn how to make your own starter and join the bread-baking craze that's taking over the nation.


First things first, gather your ingredients: flour, water, and a container. That's it! No need for fancy equipment or expensive ingredients.


Mix equal parts flour and water in your container. Use filtered or bottled water for best results. Stir until well combined.


Cover your container with a clean cloth and let it sit at room temperature for 24 hours. This allows natural yeast to start fermenting.


After 24 hours, you should see some bubbles forming on the surface. This means your starter is alive and active!


Discard half of your starter and feed it with equal parts flour and water. Repeat this process every 24 hours for the next 5-7 days.


Your starter should now be bubbly and have a pleasant sour smell. Congratulations, you've successfully created your own sourdough starter!


Now it's time to bake some bread. Use your starter in your favorite sourdough bread recipe or try out new ones. The possibilities are endless!


Don't forget to feed your starter regularly to keep it alive. If you're not baking, you can store it in the fridge and feed it once a week.
