Jane's Oregon Trail Sourdough Starter (Free Shipping U.S.) - $19.99   Jane's Sourdough Starter


Provenance: Origin unknown. Traveled Oregon Trail 1840's, California 1900's, Sonoma, CA today. Kept active for the most recent 53 years by Joanne T. who once a week fed it equal amounts of evaporated milk and warm water, mixed together with white all purpose flour.

Care & Feeding: Using an 8 oz. jar, dissolve a tablespoon of starter into 3 ounces of warm water mixed with evaporated milk. Add 3-4 tablespoons all purpose flour and stir. You seek a thickened mixture but one easy enough to stir. If it is too dry, add a tiny bit of warm water; too sloppy, add a little flour. If you are baking in the next day or so, leave it out; otherwise cover and refrigerate after feeding.
