      Title: Rye sourdough starter
 Categories: Breads, Jewish, Sourdough
      Yield: 1 Servings
 
      1 pk Dry yeast
      3 c  Water, tepid (80-degree)
  3 1/2 c  Flour, rye medium
      1    Onion, small, peeled and
           Halved.
 
  The 4-cup batch of starter made by this recipe is enough to bake any
  of the rye breads requiring a rye starter, with enough left over to
  serve as the nucleus for another baking. When you "feed" leftover
  starter... which should be done every 2 weeks or so.. add a little
  rye flour and water, using 3 parts of flour to 2 of water. To build
  up a small amount of starter to a quantity large enough for baking,
  do the job in several steps, never adding a larger measure of flour
  than the amount of starter on hand. Let the starter stand at room
  temperature overnight or for up to 24 hours, until it is bubbly and
  no longer smells floury. To increase further, add more flour and
  water in the same proportions and again let the starter ferment until
  it is bubbly enough to use. Store leftover starter in the
  refrigerator between bakings and "feedings," and for indefinite
  storage, freeze it. Thaw, then feed the starter and let it ferment at
  room temperature before use.  Makes about 4 cups.
  
  1. Dissolve the yeast in 2 cups of the tepid water, then beat in 2
  cups of the rye flour, beating until no lumps remain. Add the onion,
  cover loosely with a cloth, and let stand at room temperature for 24
  hours. 2. Remove the onion.  Beat in 1 cup tepid water, then 1 1/2
  cups rye flour. Cover with the cloth and let stand for 24 hours
  longer. The starter should now be pleasantly sour-smelling, almost
  beery, and bubbly. (Depending upon the temperature of the room, a
  slightly longer or shorter period of fermentation may produce this
  result.) TO USE: The starter is now ready for use and can be
  refrigerated for up to 24 hours before use, without further feeding.
  If you must hold the starter longer before use, the night before it
  is wanted, add 1/2 cup tepid water and 3/4 cup rye flour and let is
  stand at room temperature overnight.
