Sourdough Starter

 

TO MAKE ADDITIONAL STARTER 

Place starter in bowl

ADD AND STIR IN:

IN EQUAL AMOUNTS

1 to 3 cups of water

1 to 3 cups of flour

(it depends on how much you are going to need) 

Stir (it will be lumpy) and cover with a plate and place a clean jar on top (the jar is so you don't forget to save out some starter).  Let set at room temperature at least 7 hours or overnight.  This may set longer.  REMOVE jar and plate then STIR the starter.  PLACE 1/2 cup of starter in the jar.  Refrigerate this as your reserve starter.  The rest of the starter may be used in your recipe.  

The 3 cups of flour and 3 cups of water yield about 4 cups of starter.  Should you need more than this amount (ahead of time) reserve an additional 1/2 cup of starter and then make 2 batches.
