Is it possible to make a sourdough starter from actual seeds?
I’m still super new to sourdough starters and I remember reading something cool about yeast water and thought it was super interesting how it all worked. So, in my adventures reading up on it, I asked myself a question and I really couldn’t find any answers. I tried googling but I’ve had no luck. So I thought maybe the community here might have some ideas?
Has anyone ever tried making a sourdough starter out of ground seeds? Like ground flaxseed meal or ground pumpkin seeds mixed with water? I got the idea since fruit works and I wondered if maybe seeds would as well (might have to add some sugar or something?)
But I wondered if anyone here has ever tried it or has any thoughts on whether it might work? (Or if using seeds is a bad idea because it might cultivate a dangerous strain of yeast maybe...?)
I’m thinking I’ll try with flaxseed and water and see what happens just for the sake of experimentation! I’m very curious if it can be done...
Thanks in advance for any input!
