Sourdough Starters

I have some sourdough starters available for anybody that would like them. I've currently got a spelt starter and a wholemeal starter though you can feed your starter whatever flour you have in your cupboard once you have it. They'll come with instructions and you can always post if you have a question :)
I'll be adding some sourdough recipes on here for you to try too!

Email me!

OK, so what is a sourdough starter?

Its basically flour and water thats fermented and yes that sounds gross lol but its makes wonderful bread, muffins, crackers, waffles, and more. Its also very very good for you.
You feed your starter with flour and water regularly as the yeast that develops in the mixture eats away at the starches and sugars (I think this is correct) and needs more to keep being yeasty :)
Its very basic and if you decide you don't want ot (or you accidently kill it) its no loss, you can either start another one when/if you want or just get one off me :)

Hmmmm, I am only just getting into this DIY thing. Might leave the sourdough starter until I have got the hang of preserving, jam making, pita bread (love your recipe, so easy and everyone loved them on Fathers Day), crackers, cleaning products, bulk buying..............
