Sourdough Starter

Today we began our experiment into making sourdough bread and pancakes.

Items needed:

Glass deep dish
Whole wheat flour
Cotton towel or other cotton cover


Mix one cup rye or whole wheat flour with 1/2 cup cool water. Make sure there is no dry floor left anywhere.




Cover with a light cotton towel and let it set 24 hours at about 70 degrees. I put it in my oven with it turned off to protect it from the spring cool mornings.


This recipe came from King Arthur Flour.

Watch for future updates as we experiment with sourdoughs and make our own bread.

    1. Today will be 24 by afternoon. I have a double oven so I put it in the bottom one to see if that will keep it warm enough. We’ve had spring rains so I don’t know if it will work yet. I’ll keep you updated.
