This EASY sourdough starter is on tap for this Trim Healthy Tuesday! Somehow, sourdough has never really held much appeal until now, but this woman wants some yummy homemade bread that’s Trim Healthy Mama friendly! And that means that it needs to be slow glycemic…either sprouted or sourdoughed. And it needs to be EASY. Because as you’ll see in my post, I can BOMB fermented stuff with the best of them.
I asked a friend how to get started with sourdough, and she recommended a sourdough starter kit from Breadtopia. I ordered mine from Amazon- they’ve since stopped selling the kit, but you can still get all of the components on Amazon: the breadtopia starter culture (with instructions), the super easy to clean Danish dough whisk (which I LOVE!), and the jar.
It came with this sweet little handwritten note on it! I love to support small businesses. ♥
The thing I love about this is that there is no ‘catching wild yeasts out of the air’ involved. The packet of proven, dried starter comes with instructions on how to create a jar full of sourdough starter. And let me tell you, this is GOOD stuff!
I’ll walk you through the steps, and pitfalls here on the Grain Mill Wagon blog in my Sourdough Starter: the Easy Button Tutorial! You’ll also be able to print out my recipe/method for making this starter.
If you’re not sure about sourdough, let me just put your mind at ease: this has AMAZING flavor…not really strongly pungent or sour. It’s got more of a nutty flavor. Next week, I’ll share how to make DELICIOUS pancakes with this super easy sourdough starter.
