Making a Sourdough Starter

This starter in the photo is about a year old. Yup, it’s a Covid baby. It lives in the refrigerator and gets fed about once a week when I’m not baking. Do you see how bubbly and eager it is to get baking?

When I’m ready to bake, I take some of it and put it in a clean jar on the kitchen counter. I feed it 1-3 times a day, depending on how soon I want to bake. A general rule of thumb for me is that my starter is fed three times between coming out of the refrigerator and making bread.

But what if you are starting from scratch and you don’t have any starter? Here’s another great blog site to describe this process with photos!
