Friendship Bread Starter – Day 6


If you joined me in creating a Friendship Bread Starter, then today marks the midpoint.

Day 1 Mix ingredients
Day 2-5 Stir with wooden or plastic spoon
Mash bag – if prepared in zip-style bag – letting air out, if it becomes too puffy
Day 6 Midpoint – Starter is “hungry” – Time to “feed”
Add 1 cup sugar, 1 cup flour and 1 cup milk **
Day 7-9 Stir with wooden or plastic spoon
Mash – if prepared in zip-style bag – letting air out, if it becomes too puffy
Day 10 Divide starter for baking, giving away or adding to supply in freezer for future use
(upcoming post)

I witnessed first hand, the starter is quite forgiving – except when exposed to metal spoons or bowls.

When I started writing this post, I thought today was Day 6 – midpoint – only to discover, it is Day 8, and I should have “fed” the starter 2 days ago.  For some reason, my day count is off.  Yikes!!

With a deep breath, and an “Oh well!”,  I moved forward with care and fingers crossed.  I added the additional ingredients, and hoped for the best!  I was rewarded with bubbles.

YEA!! It’s still alive and well.
