Sourdough Starter

1 pkg active dry yeast
2 1/2 cups warm water (105-115)
2 Cups all purpose flour
1 Tbl Sugar or Honey

Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup of the warm water. Stir in the remaining warm water,
flour and sugar. Using a wooden spoon, beat until smooth. Cover with 100% cotton
cheesecloth (I just used a towel). Let stand at room temperature (75-85) for 5-10
days or until mixture has a fermented aroma and vigorous bubbling stops, stirring
2-3 times a day. (Fermentation time depends on room temperature; a warmer room
will hasten the fermentation process).

To store, transfer Sourdough starter to a 1 quart plastic container. Cover and chill.

To use, stir starter. Measure amount of cold starter called for in recipe; bring to
room temperature. Replenish starter after each use: For each 1 cup removed, stir
3/4 cup all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup water and 1 tsp. sugar or honey into remaining
starter. Cover with cheese cloth; let stand at room temperature 1 day or until
bubbly. Cover with lid; chill for later use.
