best time to use sourdough starter

Everything Sourdough

I WANTED to make sourdough bread, but to be honest, sourdough just plain old scared me.

The directions looked complicated.
Special equipment was often required (like scales)
Flours were recommended that I don’t often use
There was A LOT of waste.
The commitment was staggering (twice a day, forever).
And everyone seemed to experience a lot of failures.
I didn’t want to make THAT KIND of sourdough.

I knew if sourdough was going to be a success in my busy life it had to be:

Simple (no fuss!)
Quick (A few minutes a day)
Easy (Something a 7-year-old could do)
Flexible (Something I could put down for a while when life got busy)
Practical (It had to fit into a busy homestead life!)
So, I set out to find a method that fit all of these criteria…

I killed a few starters along the way…

but I finally found the method I was looking for!
