Often times people get caught up in the “how to” details of doing something and decide not to do said thing because they are unsure of the entire process. Let me tell you, “been there, done that”! With a lot of things in life you’re really not aware of how simple something is until you get started. Our brains sometimes over-complicates trivial details, but let me tell you, maintaining your sourdough starter is just that, quite trivial.
Sourdough starters are quite resilient. Certain strands have been around, allegedly, since the gold rush years and you can get them delivered to your house, if you wish. If they can survive a for over a century and still thrive in your kitchen, then you certainly can keep a starter if you want to.
So, to dive in to this video, I want to preface it by saying that I don’t keep a lot of starter around just because I don’t really like to waste flour. I keep just about a tablespoon in a plastic jar and two days before I want to bake, I feed it and grow it until I have enough to make bread or sourdough pancakes or waffles.
