Growing Sour

These are the newest creatures to find a home with our household... or so I hope. Yup, I'm trying my hand at sourdough. I've never done it before, but I guess there's a first time for everything, right? It's going to get it's first feeding tomorrow, and with luck I'll have a loaf of richly (hopefully very) tangy sourdough bread popping out onto this blog in a month or so. My only question is when it comes time to use the starter, what do I need to do? Just use it straight, bulk it up with flour and water and let it sit for 6 hours, or what?? I'm an active dry yeast girl... these wild things are confusing!!

Making your own sourdough is wonderful. Once you have your starter going, you should google sourdough monkey wrangler or my fave mimicooks.wordpress.com for some awesome sourdough recipes... you'd never believe all one can make with that stuff!

You can use pineapple juice to get it going and have one up & ready in 3 days - what's this month business?!
