"I just followed your sourdough recipe for the first time and it is both the best tasting and easiest I've tried over the two years I've been making sourdough."
What is sourdough starter?
A sourdough starter, also called levain, is a fermented dough filled with natural, wild yeast and a bacterium called lactobacilli. The starter is what makes sourdough bread rise. Instead of using active dry yeast like in other bread recipes, sourdough bread uses a starter.
What is SourJo?
SourJo is simply sourdough starter that has been dehydrated. This is my personal starter that is over 2+ years old. It is mature and filled with lots of healthy yeast and bacteria. I dry it once it’s reached peak activity which should make reactivating it quick and easy for you.
