In a large glass or ceramic (no metal) bowl. Sprinkle the yeast on 1/2 c of the warm water. Mix well with a non-metallic spoon and let rest 10 minutes.


Mix in remaining ingredients to remove as many lumps as possible.  Cover loosely and let rest 3-4 days in a warm place.


When you use the starter retain 1 cup of the batter to use to feed the new batch of starter.  This can be stored in a lidded pint jar in the fridge until needed.  Then "feed" it the day before to have the starter ready the next day.

  "This recipe uses yeast, some do not use pre-packaged yeast, but gather wild yeast from the air."

NOTES : If you are going to use this batter on a continual basis then do step four with each use and keep it on the counter all the time.  To space it out store it in a lidded pint jar in the refrigerator.  And can also be frozen for longer periods of time but must be thawed, fed and allowed to grow overnight before using.
