So yesterday I mentioned I wasn’t going to feed my starter, as it was acting pretty sluggish in the cold weather. Well, just check it out after it hung out under my switched-on airconditioner last night. It’s a sourdough explosion and doubled in size after only an hour! Things are definitely back on track now There is obviously a lot …
