How to start sourdough bread, the easiest recipe

Flour, yeast and bread-mixes have been flying off of store shelves almost as fast as toilet paper. Here to help you bake your best bread is Jason Michael Thomas, owner, Urban Awareness Garden Indy.

This morning Jason taught us all about how to make a sourdough bread starter, shared a recipe and showed us the easiest way to make the bread.

You can get his bread at Urban AG Indy’s drive up contact free farm stand as well as online on Market Wagon.

Jason is also hosting a 45-minute sourdough bread making class on May 12, via Zoom, sponsored by YELP.
