    Sourdough bread starter

    HONEY STARTER
    (3 cups)
    This is a Yeasted-Boosted starter

    1 package of dry yeast
    2 1/2 cups of warm water (105* to 115*)
    2 tablespoons of honey
    2 1/2 cups of bread or all-purpose flour


    Combine ingredients in a quart jar with a tight fitting lid. Seal jar and let the mixture ferment in a warm place for 5 days, stiring daily. Use as needed and replenish starter with equal parts of water and flour.

    NOTE: YOU KNOW IT GROWS.............
    I put my mixture in a quart jar as directed and left it on the counter top. I came back 10 minutes later and it was bubbling out of the jar so I transfered it to a larger container.

    I don't know if you know, but, sourdough mix can explode if they are in a small tight lidded jar. Use a crock pot or
    layers of cheesecloth.

    Do you have some good recipes that use the starter, or instructions for replenishing the starter?

    Can it be used in bread machines? I am a lazy bread maker, like fresh bread but don't deal with the job of making it by hand.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    Thanks for the sour dough recipe. If I were to start making this bread I would weigh 400 lbs plus in a short time.
    So I will just dream how good it taste.

    I was wondering the same thing . . . for the same reason. I Googled it and found this: http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/...9-5e0aaa3f6bbe

    I imagine you could just substitute the Honey starter, for the one listed.

    I get so hungry when I get to this part of the QB. This sounds so good.

    My starter is 47 years old it is a simple one made from milk and flour Milk sits at room temp in a plastic bowl no cover for 24 hours following day add flour to make a loose batter but not runny and let sit another 24 hours at this point it should be bubbly and cheezy looking and ready to use and then cover and refrigerate. Google for recipes there are so many and yes you can do it in your bread machine.
