I made a sourdough starter this afternoon. It's an eight day process but seems like it's going to be a stinkin easy one with some tasty bread at the end! Since this is Day 1 the recipe I'm following starts with 2 cups of whole-wheat flour and two cups of water. Stir it together, cover the mixture with cheesecloth and let sit for 24 hours. After only 3 hours of "fermenting" there was already a nice layer of.....whey? or whatever it is that separated to the top.
I'm so excited to see how the rest of the process goes. I'll keep you updated.
