A Wee Yeasty Beasty

Meet Henry, a.k.a. George.  This is my sour dough starter I've had for a couple of years now, but he's been around much longer.  He's actually a descendant of Carl Griffith's 1847 Oregon Trail sourdough starter.  You can learn more about Carl, his starter and his friends here:

Henry/George was sleeping in the garage fridge when we lost power.  Since a friend had asked for a start of the guy, I figured the power outage was the perfect time to wake him up.  He's looking pretty lively now!  Just in time to make some pita bread to go with our Greek extravaganza tonight.
