So after three months and some weeks worth of neglecting my sourdough starter, I decided to see if it was still alive yesterday. So I pulled it out of the fridge, opened the bowl, and didn't see any mold... good sign... it was a bit discolored, but didn't smell 'off.' So I scooped out a bit, fed it, stuck it on my mantle out of reach of the cats, and checked on it a few hours later... wow!

It wasn't dead. In fact, I made a loaf of Sourdough French yesterday, and it actually tasted better (smoother) than before. So all the neglect actually made my sourdough starter taste better. Go figure!

I will be using it more often now, however, since it's warmer and doesn't take so long to ready it for baking.
