I love bread, and it’s hard to decide my favorite. Sourdough has to be up there though, especially fresh and warm from the oven.

While I bake a lot, I had avoided sourdough, though I love baking bread. In fact, I recently shared over 100 of my favorite recipes that use yeast.

And if you aren’t familiar with yeast or comfortable baking with it, check out my everything you need to know about yeast primer.

But sourdough is different. It basically takes its own yeast from the environment and grows from there.

You need to either find a friend with a sourdough starter or grow your own – and maintain it. I love this version of a sourdough starter that does start with a pinch of yeast for simplicity.

Alternatively, if you don’t have any yeast on hand or don’t want to start with it, this is a great method to grow your own sourdough starter using just flour and water.

The challenge? Once you have all this fantastic sourdough starter, what do you do with it? There’s only so much sourdough bread you can make – so people tell me – and when you have to toss some of the sourdough starter as you’re growing it, well… I hate waste.

Fortunately, there are a ton of sourdough starter discard recipes to create some absolutely delicious breads and more. When you discard it, add it to one of these recipes and enjoy the results.
