I punched down the sad blob and left it in my steamy apartment for the day while I was at work because I couldn’t bear to throw it out. When I got home, after rising for 36 hours or so, the dough looked ready to bake. And it came out carmelized crusty, chewy, sour and full of big delicious air holes. Wow! Wild creatures were trapped and tamed to make this bread!
This is an amazing planet.
