messageAnyone have any sourdough starter?
Posted by KateKing March 31, 05:05PM

Hi there. I know a lot of people have started baking sourdough bread recently and I was wondering if anyone has any sourdough starter they would let me have.

I know I could make my own starter from scratch, but unfortunatly that requires a lot of flour (and wastage, as you must disgard some everyday). I know from my previous stint into sourdough that you often have alot of starter left over so if someone has some spare it would be better for both of us to prevent food waste!

To maintain social distancing the starter could be left on a doorstep or something similar. I am also happy to provide fresh pasta made by myself in exchange smiling smiley

I've also tried asking at a local bakery -who said they had none spare, but if anyone knows any bakeries that might be kind enough to give me some I would of course provide a donation to support a local business in these times!

Luca's on North Cross Rd are doing a delivery service, last time I looked they hard sourdough starter listed on their items available. (They have a minimum order of 25 though).

Don't necessarily need to waste the discarded sourdough starter when you feed! I add salt and herbs and bake it just as it is as a flatbread, maybe with a bit of olive oil - good with dips! It's sticky though, so best to bake on a silicon sheet if you have one. If I still have too much after my next feed in a week or so I'll let you know.

I have a sourdough starter which I am happy to share, KateKing. I keep it in the fridge and feed it about once a week. This is about as often as I use it, so I do not get "waste" but I am happy to produce some deliberately by feeding it and leaving it out for a day. PM me if you would like some.
