When one dives into the world of sourdough baking and bakes with any regularity, we will inevitably wind up with jars and jars of sourdough discard. I see a lot of recipes all across the internet for what to do with the leftover starter that does not make it into beautiful, aerated loaves. More often than not, the discarded results lean savory (I’m guilty of this myself!) So for this week, I wanted to try something different. Something sweet. And when you are like me and order peanut butter by the five-pound bucket, you make oatmeal peanut butter sourdough cookies.
This week was Cinco De Mayo! And…a ridiculous amount of people were unsafely distanced outside of the Mexican restaurants in my neighborhood waiting to pickup orders for dinner. Packed onto the sidewalk like sardines in the name of tasty tacos and margaritas. Come on, people. I am all for supporting local businesses (especially during these times), but leave a little space, huh? If you, like me, want to skip the crowds, indulge your Cinco de Mayo cravings, and make use of your newfound sourdough starter all at the same them, then boy oh boy have I got the answer for you. Sourdough Flour Tortillas!
