Using sourdough discard in your weekly meal planning minimizes kitchen waste and is a great way to enrich baked goods with an unusually tangy flavor.

Use sourdough discard at room temperature. Cold discard straight from the fridge may slow the fermentation process and negatively impact the rise of your baked goods.

Remember to pair your sourdough recipes with complementary flavors, such as garlic, rosemary or thyme.
