I've been in the kitchen lately, tinkering around with Sourdough and was planning to post about it when I found, just this morning, some comments and questions over at my original Sourdough post. I've copied that conversation here, with additional comments. In answer to The Condrays regarding a recipe they have which requires one to make bread every week: the requiring part is in keeping the thing fed and alive. Just remove what the recipe assumes you will use, to do the so-called required baking, and pitch it, or give it to someone if you don't feel like baking bread that week. If you are especially frugal, freeze this extra until you can use it. This isn't a life sentence...this isn't Miss Bucky from 1970 something's Home Ec. class standing over us with clipboard and ruler. The required part would be in making sure the starter is replenished - fed, or the yeast will die. Remember, this thing is alive, therefore, it must eat. Hmmm, just like my kitchen wolves.
