I didn't want to hijack the sour dough thread I acquired a starter and have baked twice. The second time I baked I added raisins...turned out great. My MIL said years ago she had a starter and made pancakes and all kinds of goodies....thank you sundance for the amish website...the pancake recipe is on there! Anyway I have a few questions. Can you freeze the starters? And if you mailed some out on the 1st day would they handle being shipped? Thanks!
