Colloq. WEBSTER NOTE Alaskans felt that the large amount of baking powder needed for a winter 9 cooking was bad for their health, so, rather than use baking powder, they made a heavy batter of flour, salt, water, potatoes, etc., and allowed it to form a yeast. This mixture was called sourdongh, and each day a portion of it was used for bread, biscuits or flapjacks, after which enough new batter was added to the original mixture to keep it going. And because this mixture played so important a part in the lives of the people, anyone who spent a winter in Alaska was known as a sourdough.
