Organic apple peel sourdough starter

I saw this on New Scandinavian Cooking.  A wild yeast starter made from organic apple peels.  I was intrigued and thought I'd give it a try.

So far so good.  In here are the peelings of 4 apples along with spring water to cover and two tablespoons of dark brown sugar at day 3.

   

 

And here is the baby starter, peelings removed and feeding everyday with bread flour at day 7.   Antisipation....

Patrick,

Day 11 with apple starter and all is good.  I'd like to try sourdough pancakes.  I'll refresh tonight what I would normally throw out and by morning I should be good to go for the batter.  I can hardly wait! (I've got Wisconsin maple syrup in the frig)

That's a long title, ha ha ha.

I used King Arthur Cookbook for the recipe.  Pancakes were AWESOME!  So wonderfully light and flavorful.  I can never enjoy regular pancakes again, I'm spoiled.
