So, what is sourdough starter?

Sourdough starter is a unique ingredient that adds a distinct tangy flavor to breads, pizzas, and other baked goods. It is a mixture of flour and water that has been naturally fermented using wild yeast and lactic acid bacteria. This creates a bubbly and active culture that can be used to leaven dough and create a more complex flavor profile. Sourdough starter is often prized for its health benefits, as the fermentation process increases the availability of nutrients and breaks down gluten. It is also a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of recipes, from classic sourdough bread to flavorful pancakes and waffles.
