Sourdough Starter

1/2 cups Sugar
3 Tablespoons Instant Potato Flakes
1 cup Warm Water


Prepare a quart size jar by punching a few holes in the lid for air to get in and out. Mix the ingredients well and put in the jar with the lid on. Let jar sit on the counter for 1 day. Next, refrigerate for 3 days. Remove from the fridge and add the same three ingredients once again to the jar after mixing well. Allow jar to sit out on the counter for another day. Once again put it back in the fridge for an additional 5 to 7 days. You are now ready to use your starter. Be sure to once again feed your starter all three ingredients this day and each 5 -7 day period depending on when you want to bake. You will need to remove at least one cup of the starter each week whether you bake or not and feed your starter. You can keep this going on forever. Pass a cup along to a friend if you cant bake one week.
