Bread Matters Organic Sourdough Starter

View larger Image

Make your own authentic sourdough bread. Share sourdough and pass it on. Anyone who is or knows of someone who regularly uses sourdough knows that the gift of a sourdough starter is a rare and pleasant treat, one of those gifts that can just keep giving. BreadMatters even runs a website www.fungalnetwork.com to help keep sourdough bakers in touch with each other.


BreadMatters was founded by Andrew Whitley who started The Village Bakery (bizarrely also based in another Melmerby - but not ours) in 1976. He no longer is part of that enterprise and has moved on to spread the word about Real Bread.


In 1990 he brought sourdough from Russia for his rye breads. The sourdough culture in this packet still has its basis in that original culture.


Andrew co-founded the UK's Real Bread campaign. His book Bread Matters and renowned courses reveal the secrets - and digestive benefits - of sourdough.


Store: In a cool dry place


Bring to life by refreshing with rye flour and water, following the instructions inside.


Inside the packet are full instructions and a recipe to get you started. Treated with love and care the culture will keep going on and on.


Soil Association approved.


Ingredients: organic whole rye flour, water


Allergy advice:  For allergens, including cereals containing gluten, see ingredients in bold.
