Sourdough Starter

My Grandmother and also my father made great sourdough pancakes. Well they are both gone now and have taken the secret of their sourdough starter with them to the kitchen in the sky.

Does anybody have a good recipe for making a sourdough starter?

There are many recipes for starter around, I have always bought mine but it can be made with just flour and water. There is a wealth of info at a web site called The Fresh Loaf,very good site. I have also put "sourdough" or "sourdough bread" in my web browser and come up with hundreds of places with recipes,ideas,etc.

in the resteraunt i used to work in we started our starter by mixing flour and water to a sloppy dough leave covered with cheese cloth for a week then feed daily with flour and water if it gets a funny coloured mould on it dont worry just mix it in and it will give it better flavour. if it is eating or growing too fast then store it ing the fridge

This will get you going with the starter

Don't come whining back here when you become addicted to it and you have to start wearing stretch pants or a "moo moo" - and if you're a guy you'll look pretty silly wearing either one!

Yea, I miss it too. A long, long time ago my roommate and I had this starter. It made 3 loaves every 3 days - so we ate 3 loaves every 3 days - 'cept one very bad thing - the 3 loaves were usually gone the first day. The first loaf was usually gone at breakfast!
