Sourdough Bread

1 lb

Makes great San Francisco style sourdough. 

Bread maker Sourdough bread
Yields 1 lb loaf

Sourdough Bread Starter (make first)
2 cups water 
1 tsp. active dry yeast 
2 cups bread flour 
3 Tbs. sugar

In a large bowl combine all ingredients. Stir until smooth. Cover loosely so a small amount of fresh air can get in. Place in a warm spot (80 degrees) for 3-5 days, stirring once a day. 

The starter should have bubbles on the surface and begin to smell slightly sour. At this point, it is ready to use.
