Rip off! :)
We, my family and I, just returned from a mini-vacation to San Francisco. Of course, we ate some yummy sourdough while we were there.
In one of the touristy stores on Fisherman's Wharf, I noticed a sourdough starter kit. It was, literally, an envelope (regualr postal size) with some flour in it. The price on the sticker?... *hold your breath* $6.95!!! With tax, $7 for an envelope full of flour and instructions like you'd see on this site. LOL! And, yes, I checked the ingredient list,... it was just "cracked wheat flour" and sugar. *shakes head* INSANE! I took that $7 and bought about 15 pounds of flour at Whole Foods instead. ;)
