      This was my maiden voyage with sourdough bread and it came out even better than I hoped. I began the starter on Saturday morning, baked the bread Tuesday night. The flavor was great! I fed the starter again, and am looking forward to making it again soon!

      I have made this starter for years but have finally got around to rating it! I usually get my sourdough starter working when we have company visiting. It makes wonderful biscuits and pancakes. My sister had a B & B in Ontario and I plan on taking her some. Wonderful to share!!!
