My starter has revived! It’s not yet as active as I’d like to see, but there’s no need to start all over again. I can go on with experimenting with recipes!
My starter has no name. I’ve been pondering what to call it/him/her. Any suggestions? A lot of folks name their starters and some live multi-generational lives — if one considers living longer than the original baker to be multi-generational.
Because my bread machine doesn’t have a cycle long enough to utilize solely starter for leavening I am playing with hybrid recipes. The flavor is acceptable, as is texture. I’m still working on crust!
All in all I am glad for this result and we’ll see what new ideas we can come up with.
And just for a laugh
