The author learned to use sourdough at an early age from his father, who was an 'Alaskan Sourdough' in the 1940's when he lived out in the bush of Alaska without access to refrigeration. The style of the information and recipes is a humorous, tongue-in-cheek fashion - you are instructed in the usage, care and feeding of the 'billions of sourdough pets' that make up your starter. Recipes include such things as waffles, pancakes, pizza dough and pretzels, as well as traditional and non-traditional breads. Satisfaction is guaranteed.

Chillkoot Pass Sourdough Starter. The Chillkoot Pass sourdough starter descended from one that was carried by a gold miner up over the Chillkoot Pass in Alaska during the gold rush of 1898. This event places the age of this unique sourdough starter at 99 years. It has every quality you might expect in a vintage Alaskan sourdough starter of this age, mellow, tangy and full of extremely active wild yeast. This is a batter-starter in a 12 oz crock jar, $14.95 + $5.00 shipping
