Friendship Bread (Starter)
Original recipe makes 4 cups of starter
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
3 cups white sugar, divided
3 cups milk

In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Let stand 10 minutes. In a
2 quart container glass, plastic or ceramic container, combine 1 cup
flour and 1 cup sugar. Mix thoroughly or flour will lump when milk is
added. Slowly stir in 1 cup milk and dissolved yeast mixture. Cover
loosely and let stand until bubbly. Consider this day 1 of the 10 day
cycle. Leave loosely covered at room temperature.
On days 2 through 4; stir starter with a spoon. Day 5; stir in 1 cup
flour, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk. Days 6 through 9; stir only.
Day 10; stir in 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk. Remove 1
cup to make your first bread, give 2 cups to friends along with this
recipe, and your favorite Amish Bread recipe. Store the remaining 1 cup
starter in a container in the refrigerator, or begin the 10 day process
over again (beginning with step 2).
