Live Sourdough Starter
This sourdough starter is taken directly from our batch in its live form and not dried. It is the starter we use in all our sourdough baking. A hearty strain of wild yeast that has served us well for years.
For thousands of years, sourdough starter has been used to healthily and naturally leaven bread. Containing naturally occurring yeast and friendly Lactobacillus bacteria, sourdough starter also adds its own unique flavor profile to baked goods.
Follow the simple instructions on the back of the starter label to quickly build up a sufficient quantity of active starter to begin baking.
With regular feeding, your starter can be sustained indefinitely.
Guaranteed healthy delivery within USA.
Note: As a living culture, your sourdough starter should be fed upon delivery. If this is purchased as a gift and may not be tended to within a day or two of deliver, or if you live outside of the US, please order the dried sourdough starter instead.
|“Hello Eric, I just made my first loaf of no-knead sourdough, and you are right, your sourdough starter is very vigorous! I had a fantastic oven spring! I have a rye bread rising as we speak. Thanks again.
|Just a note to say a massive THANK YOU for the wonderful sourdough starter. With it, I made near-perfect SD loaves.I have struggled for a year to come up with a good from-scratch starter and had endless problems. Yours worked like a dream, the texture of the dough was fabulous, and the loaves delicious.Why did I wait so long??Thanks again.
|I have been making sour dough bread for 50 years—best two starts I ever had: One that my pioneer ancestors brought across the plains and another that a friend from Alaska shared with me. We moved often—military! Three overseas moves would somehow result in the loss of these starts— The one that I ordered from you — a live wad of dough in a plastic bag— is GRAND! I love it. really strong from the moment I first fed it. Thanks so much—how I love making sour dough bread again.
