Making a starter for Salt Rising Bread
Made a starter using cornmeal, salt, and water and sliced potatoes. It failed miserably and need some help finding proper technique:chef:

Hot weather and open windows. The best cornmeal is freshly ground organic.

I have no experience with salt rising bread, but have read that inhibitors used to prevent potatoes from sprouting can kill the bacteria the starter is trying to grow. The recommendation was similar to NoraC's suggestion: organic potatoes. In fact, organic ingredients all the way.

I have a starter going at this time. I used Pure Stone ground cornmeal, flour, baking soda and scalded milk. I believe the hardest part of making this is getting the temp. correct while it is sitting for 24 hours. Must be around 105F. I am crossing my fingers that by evening my house stinks....hahaha:lol:
