All Hail The Mighty Kale! Sourdough Style!

There is a link at the bottom of the page for more info regarding my seven different starters and how to order them. I offer a Super 7 bundle pack at a nice discount and also a single order starter pack that includes any two starters of your choosing. You can also click here for more info as well. 

These are easy to make pancakes and they are healthy and good for you too. 

Sometimes when I feed my starter of the moment I dump it down the drain and other times I make pancakes. This morning I thought I would add a banana and then after adding it I and placing it in my nice high speed blender my thoughts wandered to the kale in the garden.

The Kale survived the winter which totally surprised me. So I ventured out in my bare feet and plucked some green and went back to the kitchen where I dropped the greens into the blender until a minute or so later I had a green batter. I also added one large egg. 

Here are the approximate ingredients:
  • Wasatch Willy Sourdough Starter, about 2 cups
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 3 Tablespoons Fat free Sour Cream
  • 1 Banana
  • Kale, 1 Cup, give or take
  • ½ teaspoon Salt (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar or Honey
  • ½ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 Tablespoons EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
I will admit in the above ingredients I omitted the oil because I simply forgot and it still turned out ok. I was going to add strawberries too but some rascal ate them. 

Cook on a hot cast iron griddle because it is not ok to cook sourdough on a non-stick surface. That would be so crass. It would be like wearing a tuxedo to a rodeo. 

Pictures are at the bottom of the page.

My Sourdough Starters

In early 2013 I started selling a San Francisco Sourdough Starter, Valentina's, which I obtained while stationed at the Presidio of San Francisco in 1978. Since then I have extended my starters to an old family starter from San Francisco which I have named after my Grandmother whom I affectionately called, Babo. I also created a non-sourdough starter (Tara) for use in normal bread recipes and it works fantastically. I have two Alaskan Starters as well, Alaska Sam's and Best Damn Alaskan Sourdough Starter, both of which are good and sour. 

A friend gave me an old Mormon Pioneer Sourdough Starter which came across the plains in the 1800's which I call, Parley's. 

My favorite starter is named after me, Wasatch Willy. It's made from locally obtained wild yeasts and is a real crowd pleaser. Everyone who has tried it really likes it.

All orders include:

  • A packet(s) of dried starter
  • Activation Instructions
  • Jar Label

Shipping Rates

All Prices include shipping. The US Post Office recently raised rates and so I have had to modify my prices slightly. I ship First Class mail. Single orders are shipped in a #10 envelope. Super 7 Bundles are shipped in a package.

Where Do I ship to:

I ship to anywhere in the United States, Canada, Australia, UK and Europe. If I have a problem shipping to your country I will let you know and refund your order in full if there is a problem. If you live in a country where mail delivery is not reliable please order at your own risk.

To Order:
So as to simplify the updating process of my blog entries I have created a single ORDER page you can go to by clicking here. As the blog slowly grows in size (a few posts each month) it becomes an arduous labor updating each and every one of them so hopefully this will make the pages easier to peruse and more enjoyable. Thank you.
