Directions

DO NOT REFRIGERATE!
DO NOT USE METAL BOWLS OR SPOONS!

Once you have the starter created, just take care of it and you shouldn't have to make it again.

In a gallon ziploc baggie, combine 1 cup sugar with 1 cup flour. Add 1 cup milk, close the bag securely and combine completely. Keep at room temperature and mush every day for 17 days.

Day 18, do nothing.
Days 19, 20, 21, mush
Day 22 add 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup milk and mush completely
Days 23, 24, 25, 26 mush
Day 27 add 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup milk and mush completely
Separate into 4 starters, give 2 away to friends, use one to restart and the other to bake.

Individual starter (1 cup portions) can be kept in the freezer in gallon zipper top bags until ready to use, then left on the counter until room temperature before starting the 10 day restarting process.
