Did you ever see the movie ‘Groundhog day’ where you kind of relive the same day’s events over and over? Well when you first make your sourdough mother from scratch you kind of relive it over and over (well okay, Day 2 at least). So ya know what you did on Day 2 then on Day 3? Well um, you need to do the same stuff on Day 4. HEY! Quityerwhinin’… it’ll get there, promise! 🙂
- Wooden Spoon
- Clean Linen
- … patience
- Uncover, stir with a wooden spoon (~5 minutes) or until it’s a thick smooth pancake batter again.
- Recover with clean linen.
- Set aside another 24 hours.
But wait till you look at it and well, stir it. You will notice a HUGE difference between day 2 and today. I can now smell the ‘sour’ aroma but it’s not quite there. As you’ll see, we still got bubbles and the aroma isn’t quite sour enough. It’s just real faint right now.
See we still got bubbles. If we had smell-o-internet you’d smell the faint sourness but we don’t so um.. take my word for it 🙂
See how thick Sally’s getting? This is AWESOME! Now get to stirrin’!
Today I only needed to do about ~2 minutes of stirring to get the creamy consistency back.
She’s all mixed up and ready to go sleep for another 24 hours. Sleep well Sally! Zzzzzzzz…
