Have you ever made Amish Bread Starter? I have not made it. I have been given it before, though. I decided to start my own starter.
First, dissolve 1 package yeast (2 1/4 tsp) in 1/4c. warm water for 10 minutes.
In a gallon size bag, add 1c. flour and 1c. sugar. Mix well.
Add to the dry ingredients 1c. milk. Mix well. Then add the yeast mixture. Mix well.
that is Day 1
Days 2-4: stir starter with wooden spoon
Day 5: stir in 1c. flour, 1c. sugar, 1c. milk
Days 6-9: stir only
Day 10: stir in 1c. flour, 1c. sugar, 1c. milk.
remove 1 cup to make first favorite Amish bread recipe
put 1c each in 2 little bags to give to friends (along with this process).
Store remaining 1c. starter in fridge OR begin 10 process over again.
I will let you know how I like it and what I've made!
