Starter for dough
« on: February 17, 2017, 05:37:07 AM »
Can someone please explain what a starter dough is and how it is used? Is it necessary or make a difference?
Thank you!!

Bobby,

Jeff Varasano's website will give you the info you need on starter cultures.  He provides an easy to follow explanation on how to create your own sourdough culture.  Once established all you have to do is feed and water when necessary (about every couple of weeks--a cup of flour & 3/4 cup purified water, stir).  People have kept their cultures going through generations.  You can then pass your legacy to others by giving away a cup of the starter for them to start their own.
