Combine flour and water in a medium bowl; stir well. Cover loosely with a cloth and let it sit on your kitchen counter for 2 to 3 days, or until bubbly.
To use and feed your starter; take out the amount needed for your recipe and then replace that amount with equal parts flour and filtered water. If you keep your starter at room temperature it should be fed every other day, and if refrigerated, fed weekly. If you accumulate more starter than you need and have no one to give it to - simply pour some of it down the sink before feeding it again.
