Amish Friendship Bread Starter

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
This bread is really good, but let's face it, at some point, you will run out of friends to give starters to. Here is a way to keep the cuture going for yourself without throwing any extra away: 1. begin with 1/3 cup of starter 2. add 1/3 cup milk, sugar, flower on day 5 and 10 (you will end up with 1.5 cups) 3. take one cup to make your bread, take 1/3 cup to start over again Everything else is the same. Actually you can scale the additions up too--all you are doing is expanding up the yeast, by giving it more sugar on day 5 and 10. there is no need to go so big if you don't need to give any away. (BTW, I work in a lab and grow all kinds of cells, including yeast. So I looked at this protocol just as I would in the lab!)
