    UnknownChef86's Note:

    This was a serendipitous find when my daughter accidentally added too much water to a french dough recipe. Rather than just toss out the dough, I tossed it into a glass gallon jar and let it percolate for a few days. It made a great sourdough batter! Refresh once a week by adding 1/2 cup water and 3/4 cup flour. It can be refrigerated.
