Dried sourdough starter in a 2-ounce packet.  This start was given to us by a friend who said the Mormon Pioneers carried it across the American plains on their way to Utah. Preserved by their descendants and shared with others to enjoy, this bread yeast starter found its way to us and now to you! We have nicknamed our starter, "Eliza." This bread yeast starter is milder than some other Sourdough cultures and isn't as sour. We have dried it so it is easier to ship and you don’t have to worry about starting it until you are ready. 

As you feed it and bake with it, it will become your own. Bakers have traded and cherished their bread yeast starters for hundreds of years. Try this starter to make your own make delicious, healthy bread. Start your journey back in time by baking amazing bread for your family. It takes about 7 days to rehydrate and become active.


Warning: You must feed the Sourdough starter regularly.  When you get this start, you will need to rehydrate it and bring it up to full vigor before using it. This usually takes a week of feeding but may be quicker or longer.

Care and feeding instructions are available here.
