The rise of Aish

Equal parts water, flour and the primordial soup is stirred then shrouded from the light so it may develop its brood.  After a few days of careful nurturing bubbles shall arise from the depths of this thick sludge, an indicator of the exponential proliferation of lifeforms now dwelling within.  As homage to their fabled discovery by the Egyptians they shall be known as Aish meaning both bread and life.

2 cups each tepid water and flour.  Stir together in a non-metallic bowl.
Cover the mixture losely with a clean towel.  Discard half each day and add 1 cup each of water and flour.  After 3-4 days bubbles form and the sourdough starter is ready to be used.
