Things to Make with Sourdough Starter Deux
This is a continuation of thread Things to make c/discarded sourdough starter.
Pie. In talking about figs with MellowD, I mentioned a chicken pie, and thought I should make it. Little did I know when I bought the chicken that my figs had died! Sigh. Before that harrowing discovery, however, I was contemplating my discard jars. I have to get back to using them up rather than feeding them. The pizza didn't use that much. :) So I thought I should look up whether you can make a sourdough pastry crust. I didn't care very much how it came out, since the crust is just there to keep the steam mostly in on a pot pie, and if it tastes good, that's just a bonus. :)
There are all kinds of sourdough pie crust recipes on the web! Some have the most outlandish starters! I couldn't figure out how to adapt them. I mean, I know you can make a starter out of anything with must, in just about any way, but some of the methods I saw were pretty extreme. Since I have all that discard, I'm thinking I should invent one on my own. :) It doesn't have to be pie crust, which isn't very wet. It could be biscuit or even bready, right?
I don't know if I'll get more figs or just make a different pie.
Or make the lasagna instead.
Some kind of dough is about to happen, though.
UPDATE: We had a thunderstorm. Unusual at any time of year, but rain in July is plain weird. I couldn't keep my eyes open. No dough. No dinner, just scrounge.
