Just to give this discussion another twist. My idea of sourdough is always using a starter which is made locally. Sourdough is traditionally a wild fermentation. This means that the localized yeast cells floating around in the air are used. Sending sourdough around the world kind of defies the idea. Peter

I have made my own starter from organic rye flour several times, as I often forget to keep some for next time. Sometimes it has worked well, other times it hasn't. I just start off with some rye flour and water, adding some more each day. I have kept it in my glasshouse where there is a warmer temperature. At the moment I have none. Will start one up again soon. Good luck with your experiment Bridge.

Yes it can be sent through the mail, it is just dried first. I use tap water. Google soughdough and river cottage for a good starter recipe. It takes about 2 weeks before you can use if but you can add some commercial yeast to help the first few loaves along. in the mean time get to know what rooms in your house are warm, you will need it for the rising. good luck

Hi Bridge
You can send it in the mail! I've seen some of the food bloggers do it :) I could send you some of my rye one if you like (although it might be a while before I get the chance to send it)

hello lovely west about to start my first sourdough. I was thinking of sourcing one from elsewhere so i could make bread sooner, however im thinking its not the type of thing you send in the mail!
Anyway, anybody got any tips on how to get it going? Does it matter if you dont use filtered water? Thanks.

REWANA BREAD - Potato bread

There are many recipes and the newer ones have yeast in them, but this is the one I use.

Most bread that is passed off as Rewana these days is rubbish, it has to have a potato bug, just like making sourdough, you cant make sourdough with out the sourdough bug.

Hope this helps.

Hi people
I was introduced to weston price's ideas early last year when my daughter sent me on a nutrient dense cooking course at Koanga gardens. For me this new way of looking at nutrition and diet has made a huge difference. I have been making kefir, yoghurt, curd cheese etc from unpasturised milk ever since and try to eat as many animal products as I am comfortable with, plus the fermented foods of course. Am happy to join this group and join other people interested in nutrient dense cooking.

I am now the proud owner of a water and milk kefir. Now I just hope that I don't kill them off. I am looking forward to having some yoghurt. as time goes by I will have extra grains, barring a disaster, so will happy give away the extras.

haha it must be a matter of taste because I didn't like the ketchup when I made it. I prefer just fermenting the tomato paste on its own with a bit of whey.
