Glass jar with starter in broke… how to rescue the starter

Glass jar with starter in broke… how to rescue the starter

The rim of the glass jar containing my sourdough starter cracked today when I tried to put the lid back on and a couple of glass shards came off on to the work surface.    I am concerned there may be some glass chips in the actual sourdough but it’s impossible to tell.

I’ve tried to rescue the starter by dissolving a tablespoon of starter in quarter of a cup of water and pouring this through a fine tea strainer.   To the liquid I have added quarter cup of wholemeal flour.  I hope this will activate.    Is this likely to work or could I have used a better method?

It’s a great starter and I don’t want to loose it – just couldn’t risk glass in my lovely loaves.
