Yields 1 portion.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons sugar

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, mix together flour, water, and sugar. Transfer to a crock. Cover with a towel, and store in a warm place. Stir starter once a day. It will begin bubbling and develop a yeasty smell in 3 to 7 days, at which time it will be ready to use.
  2. Store the starter, covered, in the refrigerator until needed.

Note: As you use the starter, the amount taken out should be replaced with an equal amount of the flour and water mixture. (If you take out 1 cup of starter, replace it with 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup water.)
