Aunt Jean's Sourdough Bread

As promised, here is Aunt Jean's sourdough bread recipe. She's made this bread for years and long ago dismissed with using a recipe. She worked really hard to get it into a sharable form for us. She wanted me to encourage everyone not to be intimidated by the numerous steps in making this bread. She says it is much easier that it appears in writing! Aunt Jean loves baking and sharing this bread. It's a true ministry for her!

In a plastic or glass container, mix the above ingredients and let stand for 24 hours. Stir, cover tightly and store in refrigerator 3 to 5 days.

When ready to make bread, remove from refrigerator and "feed" with:
