Oh dear, I thought I'd killed her!
I had neglected Sally Sourdough starter so badly, she looked ghastly. A nasty scummy film of I don't know what covered her. The colour was not good either! I carefully removed said scum which only left a bit of Sally left. I then tipped all of her into a bowl and fed her, just 1/4 cup of bakers flour and 1/4 cup of water. I fed her a few more times later on Sunday. That was yesterday and today she has rallied and at least showed signs of life...
When I got home at lunch time I portioned off a good 1/2 cup into another bowl and fed her again. I tipped this Sally back into her jar. She must be happy because this is how bubbly she was when I got home tonight.
This is the remainder so I will mix dough tonight to rise overnight. Looks like Sally lives to see another day!
