I'm new - need help

June 27, 2011 - 8:07am -- stefwork

My question is... sometimes when I leave my starter out after feeding it gets a lite crusty layer on top ~ do I stir that back into the starter or do I take it off? 

Also - what about the hard crusty layer that forms on the side of the jar? I have read that, that can be bad for the starter??? 

Thanks for your help - please email me back at - with any help you may be able to give me... :)

October 20, 2009 - 12:22pm -- fortarcher

I have been craving sticky buns.  I usally make my grandmothers recipe.  I cant find the recipe card!  I know! Shame on me!  I am the only one in the family that has the recipe.  I know its in my house somewhere but untill I find it, could some one lend me a recipe.  The rolls were verry light and had lots of caramel on them.
