Grandma Clara's starter

Since 1981

I got my sourdough start from my maternal Grandma, Clara. Every woman in the family is given starter when they marry. I've had mine for 36 years and it's going strong. The starter was brought from the east coast to Utah by My great, great, great, great , great grandmother in the late 1840's in a horse drawn wagon.

Characteristics

It's a sweeter sourdough that is not to tangy. It's great for pancakes and bread alike. It's very active. I feed it every 10 days and store in the refrigerator.
