SUPPLIES – SOURDOUGH STARTER RECIPE

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 LIDSI 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.

FLOURWheat 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!
