Rosemary Sourdough Crackers

Sometimes taking care of sourdough starter is like having a weird, smelly, finicky pet. If you feed it too little, it suffers. If you feed it too much, the flavor changes. Too much water? No good. Too little? Gluey mess. Even if you get it just right, you still have to figure out what to…
