What is a Sourdough Starter?
Sourdough starter is a natural leavening culture. It is a simple mixture of flour and water and once it’s combined it begins to ferment cultivating the natural yeast found in our environment.
Starter is used for Sourdough Baking – either any type of bread with any type of flour or sweet snacks like brownies, pancakes, cookies etc. It depends on how much or what type of bread you would like to bake but only a small portion of starter needs to be added to make the dough rise. For example, for a bread loaf made with 300g of flour we need about 30-100g of a bubbly and active starter.
Sourdough Starter simplified; Starter is used instead of commercial yeast. It makes our baked goods healthier, more nutritious, easier to digest, and overall better for us.
