I am not sure when you will be reading this post, but right now, is april 21st 2020 and we are in the middle of a pandemic. Yeast is so hard to find, my local walmart hasn’t had it in stock for weeks.

Even if you are reading this years later and everything is hunky dory again, this recipe may still come in handy if you want to make your own bread COMPLETELY from scratch!

So if you are looking to make bread or baked goods and you need yeast, I found a great tutorial which shows you how to capture wild yeast and bacteria that’s already present in the air or in the flour to make a “sourdough starter.” This believe it or not is how bakers have done it for generations.
