I When mixing recipes that use motherdough I usually:
1. Break motherdough into ~.5 oz pieces and combine with water
2. Mix for a minute or two until the dough dissolves a little bit
3. Add the rest of the ingredients
It occured to me today that perhaps mixing the motherdough with water until it dissolveds could be a mistake. I am not sure why, but it just seemed wrong. I have no complaint about the bread I have been making with the motherdough, but it can always be betters.
