I don’t know if you noticed, but I am a little obsessed with sourdough bread. Farmstead Sourdough Bread is possibly the best thing you will ever create. If you love bread, and sourdough, as much as I do, then having an endless supply available is going to be the greatest thing ever. I mean, I am already counting down the minutes until I can make more.
I was blessed with a gift. A friend of mine bestowed upon me some of her own starter, which she has been cultivating for seventeen years! SEVEN-TEEN-YEARS! I was given instructions that were fairly basic. No metal shall touch the starter or it will be kaput (metal kills the bacteria). Keep it in the fridge, feed once per week with 1:1 water and flour. Pull the starter out 24 hours before you want to bake, keep at room temperature for those 24 hours, and feed it after you have used the starter to bake.
