Friendship sourdough starter

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Sugar
⅓ cup Warm water
2 packs Yeast -- not instant
2 cups Milk
2 cups All-purpose flour

Sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar over warm water; sprinkle yeast over this. Let stand in warm place until doubled in size; about 10 minutes Mix milk, remaining sugar, flour and yeast mixture. Place in a plastic or glass container; about a 5-quart size. Stir using a wooden spoon or paddle. Do not use metal since it retards growth.

Cover loosely and let stand in a warm place overnight. The next day, refrigerate. Stir each day with a wooden utensil. On the fifth day, measure out 1 cup to bake with and 1 cup for a friend. Feed the remaining starter 1 cup flour, 1 cup milk and ½ cup sugar. Stir well and refrigerate; stir daily. On the 10th day, measure out 1 cup to give to a friend, if desired. You should have enough left to use in a recipe plus enough to feed as before; refrigerated.

Thereafter, you can use the starter daily or as desired, feeding every fifth day.
