Pour your starter into a plastic bowl, NOT metal, the starter doesn't like metal. :)
Now stir in
- 1 cup of warm water
- 1/3 cup of sugar
- 3 TBS instant potato flakes.
After your 8-12 hours are up, stir this really well one more time. Measure out 1 cup of the starter and pour out the rest. Rinse out your mason jar, or whatever you've decided to store the starter in and pour your cup of starter in and seal it up tight. Pop this back in the fridge for another 3-5 days before feeding again.
In another 2 weeks we'll all be ready to make Sour Dough Bread and it'll be worth all the feedings and effort. Trust me!!!
