I am a 74-year-old man, and I recently began to experiment with sourdough starter. Actually, I never baked bread at all until last week: I baked some bread just to use up the free flour that I received from commodity (for the first time).
Anyway, I came across several warnings about sourdough starters: Some claim that the starter can be deadly if not properly made or properly maintained. If the information is correct, why have I never heard of anyone actually dying from eating bad home-made bread.
I am scared to share my bread with my 76-year-old sister. Please comment, I am not joking.
