Should You Discard Your Sourdough Starter Daily?

I love making bread with sourdough starter. I love feeding my starter, and I love seeing how bubbly it gets throughout the day.

But let’s face it – sometimes it feels like my sourdough starter is taking over my kitchen. And I can’t possibly bake enough to keep up with the discard.

But hey guess what, I discovered that I don’t actually have to discard my starter at all – not if I manage things the smart way.

In this week’s BreadbytheHour.com post, I talk about how you can minimize waste and keep discard to a minimum. Better still, I talk about how you don’t have to discard your starter at all, if you don’t want to. Stop by and read the full article here.
