This is so exciting… it’s bubbling like crazy – I wish I knew more about it; it looks like it’s probably ready to go now. But I’ll be good and follow the instructions.
Patience is a virtue, right? (rrrrrrrrr)
And look how stretchy it is too!! I must say that trying to measure 2 Tbsp of this stuff for the next step is no mean feat. But somehow I doubt that the measure has to be exact. Everything seems to be working as promised.
And much better than I expected!! It looks like we’ll be making crackers tomorrow and that I will be mixing dough for naturally started bread on Saturday!
Alas, my friend’s starter is not doing so well. She was at the “buildup” stage with her starter and was going to make crackers from the discarded portion. She said she preheated the oven for the crackers, completely forgetting that the starter for her bread making the next day was sitting under the oven light, “not suspecting a thing“… you know the rest.
As soon as I heard her woeful tale, I raced down to the kitchen to ensure that our warning sign was on the oven dial so I too wouldn’t make the same error. Good!! It’s there!!
