1 minute a day 5 minutes on Saturday! Mother:
2 cups unbleached white organic flour ,
1 1/2 cups purified water.
Stir with wooden spoon. Cover with we dishtowel. Now, every morning thereafter, Monday-Friday, you're going to stir in
1/3 cup flour and
1/4 cup water.
How long does that take? Less than a minute, tops. On the seventh day, Saturday, your mother will be ready. It should have bubbles and smell pleasantly sour. In the morning, spoon 2 cups of your mother into a mixing bowl. and set it aside until the next day, Sunday, when you start your one-minute routine again-stirring in 1/3 cup flour and 1/4 cup water.
