Today I received sourdough starter that I ordered, all the way from Vermont, from the King Arthur Flour Company. Accompanying paperwork says this starter has been passed down in one form or another for the past 250 years. That's a long time ago! Tonight, I began the process of getting my starter to come alive. If all goes well, it'll be bubbling and ready for use in no time at all. Today's date...September 6, 2012. I kept a sourdough starter years ago, but somehow over time, I let it fizzle. You have to feed the starter regularly to keep it going. Nonetheless, I have many good memories of sourdough pancakes, biscuits and breads that my family enjoyed way back when. Sourdough starter; I'm ready to commit to its keeping once again; maybe pass it along to my granddaughters some day.
