Before there were little yeast packets to purchase at the store, there was sourdough. I love sourdough. I find it simple to work with, and always enjoy the delicious results of sourdough baked goods. But before you can start making breads, muffins and sourdough pancakes, you need a starter.

This is an excellent short video showing you exactly how to make a starter, and how to keep it alive so that you can enjoy it for years to come.
