I love this video from GNOWGFLINS because it so simply states the detailed workings of a sourdough starter and how to create one!
I would like to add that a Pickl-It Jar would be a great vessel to keep your sourdough starter. Read my post about the proper vessels for fermenting, here.
Previously I used a Fido Jar to keep my sourdough starter, but I found that over time the flavor gradually changed and I did not enjoy the taste of it anymore. I believe this was caused by the Fido jar not easily releasing carbon dioxide.
Now I have to admit that I have not been making sourdough lately, but I am planning to start it once again, especially since I am missing my favorite Sourdough Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting! This cake has never failed to please me or the many people to which I have served it! Hardly anyone believes that it is sourdough.
I’m also having a flashback to these amazing donuts I made with sourdough, Sprouted Grain Doughnuts with Coconut Vanilla Glaze.
I experimented with several sourdough bread recipes with no success, until one recipe finally made the perfect sourdough bread (with a little adjustments here and there). I hope to start making this recipe again soon, just to test it and then share it with all of you.
For now, I will leave you with the easiest recipe to make with your extra sourdough starter, Pancakes. That way your whole house doesn’t fill with sourdough, because that would be such a waste.
