Well, I did it. As I was looking for cheddar cheese this morning for our cheese, onion, green chilli omelette, the container with the wild yeast starter was staring at me.
Sourly mocking me.
Daring me to wait til tomorrow to see what would happen. Spreading its bubbles into an alcoholic sheen on top of the flour and water sludge.
I couldn’t take it any more.
Yup, I just murdered my floor. Down the drain it went. No photographs, just in case you’re thinking of sending the bread police after me for Saccharomycicide. And yes, I have washed away any evidence. Yes, I used soap.
