SOUR DOUGH

SISTER MEL SAID THAT IN MISSOURI, THE OLDER WOMEN KEEP THEIR BAKING
DOUGH IN STONE CROCKS. AS THEY USE THE DOUGH, THEY REPLENISH THE
CROCK WITH THE SAME AMOUNT. THEY BELIEVE THERE IS ALWAYS SOME OF THE
ORIGINAL DOUGH LEFT IN THE CROCK. THIS AGING OF THE DOUGH,
SUPPOSEDLY ENRICHES THE DOUGH, THEREFOR IMPROVING THE FLAVOR.
