Recipe by Lali
This is the sourdough "Starter" recipe. I've used this one for many years.

Be sure to leave the lid loose on a mason jar, or it may break under pressure. If you don't use it very often, then replenish it monthly, by throwing 1/2 away and adding more water and flour. Usually: 1 cup water to 1 1/2 cup flour. Sourdough is a living, breathing, growing animal.
Directions See How It's Made
- Combine flour, water and yeast in a warm bowl.
- Use a wooden or plastic spoon to stir mixture till smooth.
- Cover the container with plastic wrap and place it in a warm, draft-free area for 36-48 hours; your starter should be slightly bubbly and give off a delicious sour, yeasty, aroma.
- Its consistency will be that of light pancake batter.
- Cover the sourdough container and put it to rest in the fridge.
- I use a Mason Jar.
