Make your own Sourdough Starter!

SUPPLIES

Glass Jars

I recommend Bernardin Glass Mason Jars that I buy at Canadian Tire. They have thick glass, straight sides (easy to scrape down) and are a nice tall shape so you can easily see the height your starter has risen! You can also find them on Amazon here.

Glass Jar Lids

I love the mason jar lids that Ball makes! You can find the at Canadian Tire or on Amazon here.

Kitchen Scale

A kitchen scale is SO very helpful and for me it’s a must! You can find the great, inexpensive one that I use at Lee Valley Tools.

Flour

Gluten Free Starter: I recommend starting with either Organic Brown Rice Flour (this is the one I used, but superfine is best if you can find it) or Sorghum Flour.

Wheat Containing Starter: I’m making my starter with Organic All-Purpose (AP) Unbleached Flour but you can use 50% AP and 50% Rye or Whole Wheat as well. In my video I explain how to choose!
