I know it has been an obscene amount of time since I haven't posted in such a long time, I'm going to post a great recipe:
This bread is amazing! It takes 10 days to make the starter and from the starter you make the bread! Very, very yummy stuff. The best part is that it makes enough to share 1 cup of starter with 3 friends and enough for you too!!
3 c. sugar
3 c. flour
3 c. milk
DAY 1: In a GLASS/Plastic bowl, combine 1 c sugar, 1 c flour, and 1 c milk. Stir mixture with wooden or plastic spoon (don't use a metal spoon or electric mixer). Cover bowl loosely with paper towl, cloth, wax paper, or plastic wrap. Keep at room temperature (don't refridgerate.
DAY 2, 3, and 4: Using wooden or plastic spoon, stir mixture once each day.
DAY 5: Add 1 Cup Sugar, 1 c. flou, 1 c. milk; stir.
DAY 6, 7, 8, and 9: Using wooden or plastic spoon, stir mixture once each day.
DAY 10: Add 1 c. sugar, 1 c. flour, and 1 c. milk. Remove 3 cups of mixture and give 1 cup each to 3 friends. Save remaining starter for yourself!!
