Sourdough’s been in hibernation since the last post. Time to give it a quick snack. And with it, a new jar – a pickle jar. Now, in my immediate haste to find a jar large enough to house a larger volume of starter, I grabbed a newly washed pickle jar. This lead to the starter picking up a pickle smell. I’m sure that it’ll slowly go away over time… but this should make the sourdough more interesting.
I’ve left it out overnight with a 1:1 ratio of new unbromated and unbleached flour. It’s now nice and bubbly!
