     Amish Friendship Bread Starter

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None

1 (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (110)
1 cup white flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup warm milk

In a large plastic zip lock bag, dissolve the yeast in warm water for about 10 minutes. Stir well. Add to bag, 1 cup sifted flour and 1 cup sugar. Mix thoroughly or the flour will get lumpy when you add the milk. Slowly stir in warm milk and dissolved yeast mixture. Remove all air and seal zip lock bag. The mixture will get bubbly. Consider this Day 1 of the cycle. Continue through the 10-day cycle of the bread recipe.
NOTES- The starter should be left at room temperature. Drape loosely with dish towel or plastic wrap. Do not use metal utensils or bowls. If using a sealed Ziploc bag, be sure to let the air out if the bag gets too puffy. Also, when you make a starter from scratch, you can sometimes end up with a much greater yield than 4 cups depending on the temperature of your kitchen and eagerness of your starter! If this happens, reserve one cup for baking and divide the remaining batter into Ziploc baggies of 1 cup each to freeze or share with friends.
