Mix the above ingredients in a non- metal container. a crock jar is the best. Make sure that it is large enough to let the starter rise double or triple in size. Let the mixture stand, loosely covered, for a day or two. It will be frothy and full of bubbles. You will notice the sour characteristics of the sour dough will start after the first day.
