My Sourdough Starter is BACK!!

Today I'm making straight up sourdough bread. I use a very wet starter which I keep in an old clear glass coffee carafe. I was a bad sourdough momma and had to revive my starter, and I now believe it's all the way back.

After making my bread dough this morning, I fed my starter 1 cup of flour and 1 cup of water, because I need enough sourdough for pancakes tonight. After I fed it and stirred it all up, I had a little over 4 cups. Three hours later and it's bubbling happily away, is now showing about 8 cups and smells wonderful!

The point I'm trying to make is that if you had a really good starter that you totally neglected, it is possible to bring it back! Happy breading everyone!
