This recipe uses the Amish Friendship Starter, see recipe posted by Kim D, Amish Friendship Starter Amish Friendship Starter, it is the exact one I use. After 5 years of using this starter and making breads I have created several versions of the bread, this is the family favorite. Please note you can make your starter, and if you do not make bread that day, or do not want to give any away, measure out 1 1/4 cups and put in zippy lock freezer bags, write the date on bag, and freeze for up to 6 mos. (I put the 1/4 cup in to count for the stuff that NEVER seems to get out of the bag! To use, take required amount out of freezer and place in fridge to thaw for 48 hours, when completely thawed, just use as normal with no feeding. To use frozen starter to create a new series of starter, thaw on cabinet, place in plastic or glass jar, and feed it with 1 cup sugar, 1 cup flour and 1 cup milk. Count that as DAY #1.*One thing I have noticed - some people put the starter in the refrigerator. It works, but leaving it out at room temp is fine, and when this recipe was created, people did not have that luxury. The starter I am using today has been on the cabinet for over 3 years; everyone here is just fine & healthy! :) Trust the old people, we know things........
