It is against my nature to discard sourdough starter so I have a container of discards in my refrigerator. Are there recipes that I can bake using cold strter straight from the refrigerator?

There are so many recipes for your unfed sourdough starter including waffles or pancakes (same recipe), carrot cake, chocolate cake, an apple flatbread, pizza dough and English muffins. This is just a start and you can find them all under the recipe heading. Also, there are several blogj posts on using your unfed starter.
Hope this helps, Carol
Taya, Welcome to the Circle. I have a recipe posted for a yeasted (or sourdough) muffin that works very well with 'discards'. http://community.kingarthurflour.com/node/5056
Also, as Carol mentioned, there are a number of threads about using discards. Jan
Discarding sourdough starter grates my frugal Yankee nature, but I soon realized using it all up or even storing it would be a problem! Any recipe that calls for "unfed" starter can help, as well as the our recipes for waffles, pancakes, chocolate cake, pizza and others. You might also consider freezing or drying the starter - directions are on our sourdough primer page under education. Irene @ KAF
Here are a couple of more recipes that can help use up those discards. If you poke around on the WildYeast site, you will find a lot more.... Jan
Bringing this back up, too.
