When it’s time to feed your wild-yeast starter, what do you do with the discarded sourdough? By discarded, I’m referring to the cup of starter you’re supposed to pour out before you feed it to reduce the acidic level and keep the organisms alive and kicking.
Do you throw the excess sourdough in the trash or wash it down the sink? Does the thought of wasting all of that flour (and your energy) make you uncomfortable?
I always had a hard time throwing out half of my starter when it was time to feed it. So I’ve tried different methods for using it up instead of pouring it out.
