Sourdough starter is an essential part of traditional breadmaking. Also known as leaven, mother or ferment, it will take your baking to the next level.
This time-honoured method requires care and attention, but your efforts will be rewarded with loaves that last longer, have better texture, more flavour and are easier to digest.
This starter is from our own Bakery at Daylesford and is full of friendly bacteria and wild yeasts that naturally exist in the environment. As such, this starter is unique, with a distinctive flavour and aroma that captures the very essence of the Cotswolds.
As you keep and tend to your sourdough starter (see instructions below), it may collect ambient bacteria and yeast from your home, developing its characteristics and becoming even more special.
Sourdough starter is ideal for creating your own artisan loaves at home, such as our favourite seven seed sourdough bread.
You can also use sourdough starter to boost flavour and rise in many other baking recipes, from pancake batter to sponge cakes and chocolate brownies.
