  • Mmmm...mother dough!

    Hey bakery tour fans, here's a chance to have your own historic piece of mother dough! Instructions and care sound akin having seamonkeys. Originally posted at boingboing.net:


    Free, live pioneer-era sourdough starter

    For the price of a stamp, Carl Griffith's Oregon Trail will mail you a 150+-year-old sourdough starter culture that was brought west by a pioneer ancestor:Link (via Making Light)

      I have my own starter that's been going for over 25 years now. It's great stuff and makes wonderful pancakes, too.

        I guess I don't get it. By starter, what does that mean? And, how can it be going for so long. I feel dumb asking, but.....

          It's a living yeast culture you keep in the fridge. It's kind of like a batter. Every week or so you remove a cup of it and add a cup of flour and water mixed to replace and feed it.

            Interesting! So simple sounding. So, that is how you can keep it around 25 years. The taking out and replacing. Thanks for the explaination!!

                I wish I could get a hold of some SF starter, now that would be premium

                  tiggerfan, http://www.sourdo.com/culture.htm was linked as having sourdough starters from some of the world's oldest bakeries. they have what they classify as an authentic sf starter for the home baker, however it's neither free nor cheap!
