Exploring Wild Fermentation – Sourdough Starter

Some of you may know how much I just love baking bread.. and cake… cookies… heck cooking food in general seems to have become quite a passion for me. I just love feeding people good food! I don’t mean something all fancy and expensive… I mean delicious good for you food. It therefore came as no surprise that fermentation would eventually find it’s way back into my heart. I’ve made a few things via fermentation in my life.. all with good outcomes and tasty results. I just never really stuck with it until my good friend SM sent me her yogurt maker last year.. and I’ve never looked back. I couldn’t imagine not being able to make such a basic easy food for my family and I don’t have to nowadays!


Today I’m going to tell you about one of my latest fermentation creations.. my sourdough starter! I just love her bubbly yeasty form sitting so happily in a bowl in my fridge. Honestly I thought there would be some complicated trick to making a starter.

I’m here to tell you.. there isn’t!

It is so dang easy.

All you need is a little time, a little flour, a little water and a warm place to get it started. Instead of recreating the wheel of tutorials, I’m going to send you over to one of my favourite blogs,  The Kitchn. Here you can find a wonderful and easy to follow tutorial on making your own sourdough starter. Emma explains the how’s and why’s of making sourdough. It has beautiful photos of each step and an excellent running commentary at the end with lots of Q&A!
Here’s a little video of my starter waking up from a nap in the fridge for a few days.

So if you’ve been waiting for an excuse to use the basic chemistry you learned in school, here’s as good a reason as any. Make a living culture right in your kitchen in a few days! It is a rewarding experience and the kids will really enjoy watching the sourdough starter in action!
