I have always wanted to start my own sourdough starter and thanks to Chef Cathy for this opportunity. I found that the first couple of days I wasn't successful, usually the top was dried out, or there was nothing!! Then I found out not only to have a warm ( not necessarily hot) place, but when I would add water, warm water works better than cold for me.
So here I am on Day 7 of the challenge. I woke up to my "pot over flowing with sour dough starter on the table and the floor!!" So I made the pancakes with the sourdough recipe and I even made a batch of sourdough English muffins!! ;)
Now, for some advice from you Cathy.... I still have plenty of starter in my pot, so I really don't want to add any more flour and water as I don't have enough room in my pot or the time to make anything more right now. Tomorrow I will be out of town, so will my starter be o.k.? My other question is, could one bake the sour dough English muffins in the oven? I only have cast iron skillets, but can only cook one at a time. I was wondering if you could bake them in an oven on a cookie sheet?
Thanks for any advice and look forward to getting different recipes for using sourdough!
