Does anyone else play around with sourdough? I made a starter last September and have been sharing it with family and friends. Best durn hotcakes you ever ate. Make your own starter (in a non-metalic bowl): --flour --1 package of dry yeast --enough warm water to make it a thick dough --cover with a dish cloth Then, set it on the counter and the next morning you'll have a nice yeast smelling sponge. Use 2/3 of it and add more flour and water to your starter and you're good to go...forever. Good luck!
