natural starter - day2 pm
Here’s how the starter looked last night just after I mixed it.

Why is it that people say capturing wild yeast is difficult? So far it is all too easy! Each stirring takes about 5 minutes (at the most) The most difficult thing so far has been remembering not to turn the oven on….

natural starter - day3 am I can’t believe it. It’s working!! This is what I saw when I uncovered the bowl this morning. And when I gave it a sniff, it was lovely: a delicately yeasty – not sour at all.

If it’s like this when the temperature is relatively cool, imagine how busy the mixture would be by this stage in the summer!

It looks like we’ll be having natural starter crackers sooner than I thought.

edit @ 18:50 EDT: Just upgraded to the latest version of wordpress – I hope that nothing is missing….
