there's a current thread on how to start a sourdough from scratch. you could also try specialty gourmet ingredient shops or go online and order some starter from King Arthurs Flour.
Classic Fresh Sourdough Starter - 1 oz.
French Sourdough Starter - 5g
or
Sourdough Cultures


as for a recipe, i don't use one. but here's how i go about it:

use a cup or so of starter and add milk and an egg, then add buckwheat flour to make it a pancake batter consistency. you could also add a healthy pinch of salt and a small handful of sugar.

then you have to wait until it's all bubbly. i usually make it in the evening, let it sit out, and then throw it in the fridge before i turn in. by next morning, it's ready to use. i've also just left it out overnight. as you can tell, i just generally wing it. i'm sure you can probably google some actual recipes.

they're yeast-risen, so the consistency isn't anything like regular pancakes. they're fairly chewy.

hope this helps you out!

Once a year when we are up in the vermont/ new hampshire area, we make it a point to go to Polly's Pancake Parlor.

You get a choice of different batters ( regular, oatmeal, buckwheat ..) and choice of additions ( chocolate chips, walnuts, coconut...)

My favorite were the regular batter with coconut. Although, the chocolate chip/ walnut ones were great too. Didnt care too much for the buckwheat batter though.

Mmmmmm

Frank has been creating some very yummy pancakes. I have always loved pancakes made with buttermilk, but he has made some blueberry pancakes with sweet milk. I'm sure everyone's ideas helped inspire. Thanks!

Yeah, I know, when I have time to do fancy things I make my own, some times I even make this special recipe, it is baked milk that is turned into butter milk. Very interesting taste. But most of the time i do not have tim eto play around. Actually planing to do that sometimes this week, i got some raw milk, it is soooo yummy.



But What is the Sweet milk?

Sweet milk is what great-grandma, who owned a dairy, called whole milk that was very fresh. With her, I'm sure it was likely unpastuerized, but it is what I call whole milk.
