From: (Stephanie da Silva) Date: Tue, 3 Aug 93 15:26:15 CDT AMISH FRIENDSHIP BREAD (Original Starter Recipe), Linda DiSanto, Austin, Texas Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup of the warm water in a deep glass or plastic container. Stir in remaining warm water, flour and sugar. Beat until smooth. Cover with loose fitting cover. DO NOT REFRIGERATE! The starter requires 10 days for fermentation as follows: DAYS 1, 2, 3 and 4: Stir batter DAY 5: Add 1 cup each milk, flour, sugar and stir DAYS 6, 7, and 8: Stir batter each day DAY 10: Add 1 cup each flour, sugar, milk; stir. The batter is ready to use. This makes 3 cups batter to use in the recipes. If you want to you may put 1 cup batter each into 3 containers and give 1 or 2 away. Save 1 cup to begin process all over again OR you can use all 3 cups batter for the recipes at 1 time and when you want to bake these again just start the starter again.

You can also use a gallon size bag versus a container and it will turn out the same....I normally put the gallon size bags in a bowl or pan to sit on the is much easier to give to people that way.. :)
