California Raisin Marketing Board Starter Formulations
« on: September 17, 2010, 04:10:30 PM »
While scanning an online baking magazine I receive, I found a reference to the website of the California Raisin Marketing Board where I found links to pdf documents for making various natural starters (white, wheat and rye) based on using raisins: http://www.calraisins.org/raisin-recipes/browse-recipe-categories/professional/. The white starter, for example, is given at http://www.calraisins.org/wp-content/uploads/pdf/california_raisin_white_starter.pdf. For a small volume home application, one will need to scale down the formulation.

Peter,

The instructions for the white raisin starter is very similar to what I did here:

Not exactly, the same but very close.

Essen, Thanks for the link. Hey, I assume when you started feeding you discarded half after the first feed each time you fed? I'm going to give it a go.

Don,

I honestly don't remember if I discarded any of the starter before each feeding since it was so active but I believe I didn't. However, I think it is a good idea to do so. Keeps the entire thing healthy.

Keep us posted, Don.

And Feliz cumpleaños número 200!
