Ways to Use Sourdough Starter
So you have a bunch of leftover sourdough starter, or “discard”, as we call it. What else can you use it for besides bread? Check out this page for a list of recipes! There’s more to sourdough outside of amazing bread!
Below is a growing collection of our family favorite tried and true sourdough recipes from my own kitchen and other amazing bakers. I will continue to add to it when I find my own favorites and develop more recipes of my own. There are endless ways to use extra starter. That “discard” that you take away when feeding your starter? Don’t throw it out! I pop my discard starter back in the fridge until I’m ready to make something else with it. I hope this page gives you some inspiration of how to use yours.
