    Hi. This is a "starter" bread. Someone gave me one years ago, and I wish I had saved the recipie.
    Anyone have a good one.
    Thank you

    [​IMG] I call my mother's starter her "other pet". As far as pets go, it makes better bread than any of mine do...

    Hi Christina! Lake Nebagamon is a tiny little community about 20 min south of Superior Wisconsin [​IMG] I was born and raised just outside of Madison, but moved up here for college and never left. I think its kind of funny that I now live in a smaller town than the one I grew up in [​IMG] When I was a kid, I didnt think that was possible! Oh well. Anyway, my mother makes some mean poppy seed muffins out of her starter along with about 10 other things [​IMG]

    I received a starter last srping. It really is amazing how versatile it is. I've been putting my starters in the freezer & grabbing on when I have time. Here's a link to a website with many different variations on the original recipe. We love the coconut/ chocolate chip.

    My starter has developed a really nice taste over these months of aging and growing.

    I use raw sugar, raw milk from jersey cows and unbleached bread flour.

    Here is the starter this morning. See that line of hooch?

    Here is the mix after I fed it. It will rise over the day and fill the jar.

    Go to my blog link and start a batch now. In 11 days you can bake with it. By Christmas it will have developed an awesome flavor and holiday treats will be amazing.

    You can cheat and add 1 package of yeast dissolved in warm water to the milk, sugar, flour and get a jump in your starter.
