Bad Mistake to Make, Yet So Easy to Avoid

January 16, 2008 - 9:04pm -- umbreadman

I may have lost my sourdough.

Uh oh.

I had a small-ish amount remaining in my container in the fridge and thought that since it hadn't been used in a little while, I'd take all of it out, refresh it, use it as the sponge for a fresh batch while saving a chunk to propagate the culture, like it's normally done. So I did that, getting most of the goop out of the jar and doing my thing. Except I forgot to remove a bit to put back in the jar.

A friend just sent me some comments by Dave Barry, including one I thought rang a bell:"There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness'". Maybe 'obsession' would be kinder, A.
