Day 1 of the "I too can bake bread" Challenge

Firstly, I want to apologize that this was not done in a more timely manner.....but I have an explanation for that. I had to get ahead of you so that you could know what your starter would look like. :)

With that being said, here is what you will need:

  • 1/2 cup of purified water
  • 1/2 cup of Bread Flour or All-Purpose Flour (Not self-rising)
  • Something to stir your starter with (chopstick, spoon, but please no metal)
  • Glass or Plastic container


Pour flour into container

Add water


Give it a stir until combined.

Cover with a lid loosely. Do not seal it though.

Every few hours you will want to stir your mixture around. And that's all you need to do for Day 1.

I'll be a couple days behind you but plan to start tomorrow. Is using purified water vital to making the starter work? Our tap water here is very good.

Tap water is fine. My suggestion (from the research I've done) would be to let your tap water sit at room temperature for a few hours. It's the chlorine that is used to kill bacteria in the water that we are trying to avoid. If your water has chlorine in it, the sitting out for a few hours method gives the chlorine a chance to evaporate . it gives you a better chance of not killing your starter. .
