Sourdough Starter – Day 3
Day 3 and my starter is looking a little different this morning. I hope you can see that it’s kinda foamy and bubbly this morning! It’s working! And take a whiff…you can now start to pick up faint sour notes in your starter.
I told y’all this would be easy…Day 3 you do exactly the same as yesterday.
1. Stir your starter a bit to reincorporate any liquids
2. Pour off 1/2 of your starter. Either discard or pour into another container. I am going to share a recipe for pancakes that you can use your discard in.
3. Add 1 cup flour and 1 cup water and stir it in really well…scraping down the sides of your jar/bowl as much as you can. You may have crusty, dried starter around the top of your jar if you’re like me and make a mess of it sometimes. It won’t hurt anything but feel free to transfer to another jar or bowl if you prefer. I transferred mine to a bowl because I think it will be easier to take pictures.
4. Put your tea towel over it and leave it on the counter for 24 hours.
Day 3 is done, almost 1/2 way through the initial 7 days! Please share pics if you are playing along! I will make a separate post with the pancake recipe for anyone interested. You can find it here.
