It's hard to find fresh sourdough starter that's never been dried! Fresh starter is ready for use much more quickly than dried starter, and ours has a wonderfully rich history. It's descended from a starter that's been lovingly nurtured here in New England for decades. Thousands of bakers before you have made wonderful bread with a bit of this same bubbling brew. Our handsome stoneware crock lets you nurture your starter while dressing up your countertop in the process. Tall size allows for ample growth while the loose-fitting lid allows gases to escape. Can also be used to store other baking ingredients. You've got everything you need to start baking sourdough!

IMPORTANT: Sourdough starter is a living entity; it needs regular feeding.

Thus, we recommend no more than 10 days elapse between when the sourdough starter you purchase leaves our facility here in Vermont, and when you give it its first feeding. Keep this in mind when choosing a delivery method; if you need help making the smartest shipping choice, please contact our customer service team. For best results, please feed your fresh sourdough starter within 24 hours of receiving it. Care and feeding directions are included with your order.

Note: the fresh sourdough starter that comes in this set is processed in a facility that also packages products containing eggs, milk, soy, tree nuts, and wheat. DO NOT CONSUME RAW STARTER.
