Our most important ingredient - the dried sourdough starter flakes! This is what makes sourdough, sourdough! The sourdough starter contains the wild yeast that produces bread with distinct sourdough flavours. Simply follow the instructions in the recipe (provided with the Complete Sourdough Starter Kit) or on the recipe section of the site to begin your very own sourdough starter.

No need to wait multiple weeks for a strong starter to develop, using these dried sourdough starter flakes will have your starter strong and ready to make your first loaf of artisan sourdough bread in as little as 2 days!

*Note* - jar not included, this is the dried flakes packet only. We have a jar that can be purchased separately here.
