Q: I was at a party recently and my foodie host gave me a small bottle of bitters starter to take home with me. I completely forgot about it until recently, with all the buzz about bitters shortage.
Does anyone know how to make bitters from a starter, or have any thoughts on what I should do with this stuff?
