I got a packet of 200 year old Natural Yeast a few weeks ago and have been learning how to use sourdough.  It's been easier than I thought and I love the health benefits.  The natural yeasts eats out so much of the gluten, it's easier to digest.

I've tried a wheat natural yeast before and I wasn't successful.  While everything tasted alright it felt like so much work to keep wheat ground just for feeding and always trying to keep on top of what I needed to do for the start.  This one in particular I feed regular all purpose flour and only once a week for our bread or whenever I want to make something else.  Nice!

Basic White Bread


4 cups non-chlorinated water
4 tsp natural sea salt
1 Cup natural yeast start
3 eggs
1/4 cup honey
several cups of flour until the dough is no longer sticky.  ...start with wheat but when you get adventurous you can add spelt or kamut or any other kinds of grains in proportion with the wheat for more nutrition!

Mix together and let rise for 12 hours.  Form into 3 long rolls and place in 12 inch bread pan.  Let rise 2 hours.  Bake at 375* for 30-40 minutes or until center is 192*.  Let cool.

Waffles


2 1/2 cups non-chlorinated water
1 cup starter
4 cups flour
3 eggs
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp salt
3 TBSP sugar

about 1 cup milk
1 TBSP baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

Mix the starter, flour, eggs, oil, salt, and sugar together and let set covered overnight.  In the morning if it's too thick for a pancake batter add milk for a better consistency.  Sprinkle baking powder and soda over the top and mix until ingredients and blended.  Scoop onto griddle for pancakes or into waffle iron.  



...If you are interested in trying here is a great youtube that shows how to start and the benefits. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7h-imP9zaM

He's so strong, he's outgrown a few jars!

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait... you only feed this one once a week?! I have never heard of such a thing! I avoid sourdough because I can't take care of the mother every single day. I tried that with water kefir ferment and it was just too much. I would LOVE to have a starter that only needed attention every 7 days, that's ideal! How do they ship it to you, dry or is it like a wet sample? I wonder if it would get across the border to me here in Canada, hmm...

BTW your kitchen is so awesome. I wish you were my neighbour, I'd love to share interesting cooky stuff with somebody like you!

*looks at my past due milk kefir*  yep, giving attention every day stinks.  .....LOL
My sourdough came as a wet, ready to use start.  They sent about two teaspoons worth in a small sealed packet inside a tin, with easy to follow instructions.  I'm not sure how they'd send one to Canada, maybe they'd have to send dried.  Bet you could give them an email and ask if you were interested.
...And yay, cooky neighbor across the border!   Cheesy
