Buying a sourdough starter
I would like to start my own starter, but since I am coming to the US for a visit I thought I would use the oppurtunity to buy a sourdough starter (or two) .
I googled and read a couple old threads here. Sourdough International was mentioned, King Arthuer, and NY Bakers.
Looking at the sourdough international website, any thoughts on which starter(s) might be fun to start with?
Their homepage mentions the Poland one as a new product and recommendation.
Anyone have any other personal suggestions? I love sour breads, I have been dying in the land of bolillo here in Mexico. :) I almost had a heart attack when I found some rye bread at the store the other day (but havent found a source for rye flour) . My husband doesnt like rye though, but has liked sourdough in the past.
Anythoughts? NY Bakers I guess used to give away starters if shipping was paid, but I sont see info on that on their website.
thanks for any tips (other sources or choices from the sources listed), appreciate the help!
My goal this year is to never buy one loaf of bread once our kitchen is finished :)
