Recipe by Bev in San Jacinto

This very active starter does not taste fruity when baked. It does give the starter a very pleasant, clean sweet/sour aroma. Use it as you would any sourdough starter. If you don't plan to use it as soon as it is ready, store in a crock or glass jar in the fridge for up to 7 days. Always replenish after a week in the fridge.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the flour and yeast in a medium plastic or crockery bowl.
  2. Whisk in the warm water until all lumps are broken up.
  3. Stir in the fruit.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand in a warm place for 24 hours, stirring occasionally.
  5. After 24 hours, remove the fruit and add the first feeding, whisking to combine.
  6. Let stand 8 to 10 hours and the starter in ready to use.
  7. For replenishment, I discard half the starter, add fruit along with 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 water.
