Making a Sourdough Starter (Without Store Bought Yeast)!

A couple sourdough loaves I baked in December

I love bread in most forms, but I think sourdough is my absolute favorite!  I especially enjoy a crusty “artisan” style loaf, with a piping hot bowl of soup, or just plain with butter, or the entire loaf while hissing and growling at anyone that tries to take it from me…oops, did I type that out loud?   Bread, to me, is one of the easiest ways to start being more self reliant, not to mention get in touch with our “inner pioneers”!   It’s fairly inexpensive to make it yourself, and is not only healthier and tastier than store bought (in my opinion), but makes a nice gift or addition to a pot luck.
