Sourdough bread - for example - is incredibly cool stuff. The starter - which is just flour and water in a mason jar - literally pulls the yeast and good bacteria out of the air around it and creates a bubbling ball of nourishing life after just 12 hours on the kitchen counter.

|Bubbles = Life!|
I've downloaded the introduction to sourdough from an great site I frequent, Gnowflgins - weird name, awesome site - and it has just made me giddy with new information.
I'll be keeping you posted on how I progress with my sourdough. I hope to master it and perfect it in the coming weeks.
