Now that you’ve gotten your sourdough fix, what should we even do with this extra starter? When I first started this sourdough adventure, I felt bad just tossing away the scrap starter- the daily discards add up. But I realized that you can do a lot more than just tossing the starter in the trash- I could transform it into scones, pancakes, biscuits… the options are endless.
One of my favorite, repurposed ways to use the starter is in biscuits. Using starter is a great way to save on ingredients, get a unique tang, AND feel good about the fate of your starter discard. Here, I’ve just added cheddar. If your scallions are still growing (!), definitely toss a few chopped scallions and a clove of minced garlic for extra kick.
