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.
