Looking for an ingredient

I was looking at a recipe for a sourdough starter and this was one of the ingredient
• Patience. About two weeks’ worth (no, I don’t know where to buy any, either)
mmmmm who does?

Let me know if you find some, I don't usually need it . but a packet in the pantry would be very handy, especially when dealing with fools (usually on this MB)

on the shelf next to persistence. others might find similar products

What aisle? Countdown/paknsave . I can travel!
I don't need as much persistence though. do they sell it in small amounts?

Anywhere near the Tolerance supplies?

If you do not have the patience to make the starter - then even if you buy a sourdough starter (lots of people sell those nowadays in NZ!) you will soon get bored with making a sourdough bread.

It takes 3 steps to make a good sourdough bread which takes about one and a half days! Then you still have to raise it and bake it .

Maybe too much effort in the world of "instant".

However you can buy mock sourdough bread (made with a mix of chemicals rather than slow fermentation) from most supermarkets nowadays.

Give it a try!

I have just started to make this type of bread and I will find/have patience to make it as other breads gives me heart burn. I have a organic rye flour starter going at the moment. I brought he flour from Piko.
Have you some good sourdough rolls loaves recipes?
I am also making yogurt from a culture and made my first lot of cultured butter this morning

Good on you pam.delilah. Glad to see the old arts are not being lost in the modern world of instant.

It is very satisfying to produce some thing from scratch and knowing what is in it. And taste so much better
