Sourdough starter

Method

  • In a jar add the water, the flours, and mix with a spoon until the mixture turns into a paste. Seal the jar with a lid and leave it at room temperature for 24 hours, until it starts activating.
  • On the second day, add to the same jar 50 g water, 50 g of the flours, mix, and seal the jar. Leave it at room temperature for more 24 hours. At this point, you will have 200 g of sourdough starter.
  • On the third day, remove 100 g of your sourdough starter. Add to the jar 50 g water and 50 g of the flours, mix, and seal with the lid. Leave it at room temperature for 24 hours.
  • Follow the same process for 7-10 days in total. You should always have 200 of sourdough starter, remove 100 g, and feed with more 100 g.
  • If you don’t use it right away, store it in the refrigerator. When you need it, follow the same process of “feeding” and wait for 3 hours until it doubles in volume. Then, use it to make the bread.

Tip

Try to avoid using aluminum bowls and cookware…. Glass is always a better material to use for cooking!
