    HELP! Can somebody tell me how to get this started? My mother use to boil potatoes and use the water to capture the yeast. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Let me know, I would really appreaciate it

    This one also uses packaged yeast so you dont have to wait to catch wild yeast.

    Thanks for your recipe Diana. I tried it this weekened. The starter I mixed up has been in the bowl for 48 hrs. a nothing is happening. It said to place in a warm spot and I dont really have a warm spot in the house. Isnt it suppose to be bubbly? Mines not. Guess I will try your recipe again later on. Cant imagine what went wrong. Thanks anyway, will still keep this recipe in my cookbook.

    How's the date on your yeast? You can also just leave it to catch wild yeast-I know that sounds funny and it will take a bit longer, but other than that I don't know what went wrong. If you cant find a warm spot int he house I'd preheat the oven to 200, turn it off and place the bowl in there. Or you can pour boiling water in the bowl, dump it when the bowl is hot and add all the ingredients warm. Good luck. Diana

    Hi Diana,
    I checked my yeast before I used it to make sure it was not out of date, it wasn't. I thought about leaving to set another day or so to see what happens but I am really leary about food that is spoiled so I decided to just dump it and try again. My mother use to catch the yeast, she didn't use store bought yeast. Will not give up this easily, I will definetly try it again. Thanks again for your help. Paula
