Recipe: Sourdough Starter

Recipes using Red Star Yeast

Price Each: $12.93USD


1/2 tbsp yeast
2 cups warm water
3 cups unsifted Pillsbury Unbleached or King Arthur Unbleach Flour*

Note: Mix your starter at least 24 hrs before you plan to use it. Can be used for sourdough skillet bread recipe.

1. In a glass or stainless steel container mix the yeast with warm water.
2. Add flour and beat until smooth.
3. Cover loosely and set in a warm place (not hot, 70 - 90 degrees).

The starter should always smell yeasty or alcoholic, but never rotten or foul. If you don't use all your starter, to keep it going stir daily and every 4 - 5 days feed it 1/4 cup flour and 1/4 cup water.

* Use unbleached flour for best flavor. Unbleached flour is bright white, it's just more time consuming to make. Flour will whiten naturally after milling. Since the natural whitening takes time (about 6 months), many producers speed up the process using chemicals. That process and chemical addition can alter the taste of foods made from bleached flour.
