We’ve been having a heat wave here in southern California. The inside of my house has been over 100° F for the last four days (few people have air conditioning here). I am sad to report that I have two casualties, directly related to the hideous hot weather.
My sourdough starter turned pink.
My barm turned gray and little round fuzzy things began growing on the surface.
They both smelled like something out of a gym locker room.
To lose one is bad enough, but to lose both of them at the same time is nigh on heartbreaking. So, there will be no sourdough products from here for awhile. :(
