And this, my friends, is what sourdough looks like when it fails to rise in the oven.

I have not made sourdough in well more than a month. While I have fed the sourdough starter at least once weekly, I am thinking that I should have poured some off, then engaged in a full day of feedings, before using it to bake.

The dough looked and felt normal when I finished it Monday evening. But this bread certainly failed to rise in the oven.

I really don’t want to handle the bread, for fear that I will drop it on my foot and never walk again.
