I've let my sourdough rise for 3 days as an experiment and...

heard you could let it stand for 3 days

Should I bake and eat it???

YIKES!!!

 

I don’t think I would eat it, if it’s gone moldy, Joe.  And I’m not sure where you heard that you could let it stand for three days, but I highly doubt if that’s correct.  It can be refrigerated for several days with no ill effects, but that’s only due to the colder temperatures slowing down the metabolic rate of the wee beasties living in your starter.

 

if you do wind up eating the moldy starter, make sure that you (or your widow) post to let us know how it worked out.

YIKES INDEED

well it is out of the oven.

When I say mould, its the white crust that you get on top of your starter (frequently in my case)

That whiteness is still there on the bake in question..

I will amend my will and testament shortly..
