I found this recipe on the Internet. It explains how to start the Amish Friendship Starter.


When you get a starter of friendship bread you do nothing on day one. Days 2 thru days 5 all you do is mush the bag. Normal to rise and ferment. Burp as needed

On day 6 you add to starter bag 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup milk. Mush the bag. On days 6 thru 9 mush the bag.

All mixed together ready to add to loaf pans Make sure no METAL (spoon or bowl)

To half of the mixture I added some nuts. A lot of people can't or don't like nuts!!

Put in preheated 325 oven, bake one hour

Pack it up and give as "friendship bread"!! You will never run out of bread. NEVER!! Someone is always giving you a bag from the bag you gave them and on and on and on.
