3 Ingredients to Homemade Sourdough Starter: Flour, Water, Patience- DAY 6

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly

Day 5 was such an awesome day for the sourdough starter, I am not going to change a thing. Today I am going to do the exact same actions. Pour out starter leaving about 2 cups or so in the jar. Then feed it 4 ounces flour and water this morning. Again, as last night, about 7 p.m or so, I will feed 2 ounces each, flour and water. 

 I wish there were more to share than this, but it seems I now have sourdough starter on my hands. It could be a little more sour smelling, but it will just continue to increase in that way as I continue to nurture it over the course of the winter. My next post about this starter will be of the bread I make from it. After all, isn't that the whole point of these mason jar beakers full of slurpy slop, smelling quite like my son's soccer socks sitting around the kitchen? (or, in my case, the office) This has been a fun project. I look forward to a many slices of sourdough toast on my breakfast plates this winter. 

Three little ingredients to make a jar of sourdough starter. Flour, water, and patience. Even fewer words to describe the experience. Worth it!

I sure hope this blog series has been as much fun for you as it has been for me! Please let me know your progress in the comments! I'll write soon about bread baking day!
