A bread starter is the gift that keeps giving. You can make 1,000,000 loaves of bread from this single starter without the need for perishable goods or yeast. That’s because you’re going to feed your starter (like you’d do with your dog) or put it into dormancy (don’t do this with your dog) and then continue using the same starter to make bread for the rest of your life. Give the starter to your grandkids one day.
To start small, this is essentially a poolish, but you’ll get an email when your product arrives about how to convert this into a sourdough starter if you’d like as well—just takes a few days of feeding and sitting at room temperature. Don’t need to put on clothes to make this recipe.
MAKES: 1 loaf of bread and a starter that will make you 999,999,999 more.
