About Heritage Sourdough Starter Kit
This starter kit includes:
Heritage Bread Blend (5 lb. bag)
This is a unique blend of two heritage wheat flours - Turkey Red and White Sonora. Turkey Red is a strong, hard winter wheat that's rich in protein and has excellent baking qualities. It has a pure white endosperm that will dazzle you. No need for bleaching this flour. White Sonora is a soft wheat with a rich, nutty flavor and creamy-gold color. Together they make a loaf of bread you’ll be proud of whether it’s sourdough or made with yeast.
This flour is heritage, organic, non-bleached, non-bromated, and has zero additives.
This freeze-dried sourdough starter is made from the same starter we have been using at Sunrise Flour Mill for the past six years. Now, using freeze-dried technology, we are able to mail samples of this starter nationwide to help people start baking their own delicious and nutritious sourdough bread!
Like the well-known San Francisco Sourdough, every sourdough starter has a story, lore, or mythology about its origin. This sourdough strain originally came from Italy. It was brought to us by a friend who came across it while traveling in Bolivia. Her Italian friend in Bolivia told her the starter had been maintained for over 100 years and had some very unique characteristics.
Our friend shared some with us and insisted this was a special starter. We quickly discovered it was indeed special, and the rest is history!
What is Heritage wheat?
Heritage wheat was the predominant wheat grown in America up until the 1950’s. Many people find it more digestible than modern wheat. Its long deep root system allowed it to survive the Dust Bowl, and gave the Midwest its famous nickname “The a Bread Basket”. Heritage wheat was a staple in every household. The history of it can be tracked to biblical times and has been responsible for nourishing generations. It was grown before the introduction of intensive scientific plant breeding.This wheat is experiencing a resurgence.
