The sourdough starter must be active before you use it. You cannot take it straight out of the refrigerator and use it. The mixture must be bubbly. This is a good page on the art of sourdough. So far, it is proving to be more difficult to manage than making cheese. There is a lot of planning involved in using a sourdough starter.
I wish I had my head together enough when Wally and I drove down to Georgia and stopped at Whole Foods to get some good flour. In the past, I’d always stop at Whole Foods if I was down in that area and I’d almost always spend a lot of money. I was afraid to go in now for fear of buying too much. You can take me into a clothing store and expect I won’t buy much, if anything, but bring me into a store like Whole Foods and look out!
I thought I needed to be in work at 10:30 today, but it’s 11:30 so I suppose I should go out and work dogs for a while. I’m feeling a bit lethargic this morning.
