CAN I MAKE A SOURDOUGH STARTER USING SWEET POTATOES

cynthia7214

Does anyone know if I can make a sourdough starter using sweet potatoes?  I have made a potato starter using white potatoes and was just curious.  Also, when making potato starter is it better to feed the starter with potato water or is plain water o.k?

Hi Cynthia,

 

I suppose you could use sweet potatoes. Are you talking about using them to get the starter started or to continually feed the starter?

Why do you use potatoes to make a starter? What's the benefit?

 

Thanks,

Andrew
