Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients:
1 Dry yeast
1/2 Cup(s) Warm Water
2 Cup(s) Luke warm water
2 Cup(s) Sifted flour
1 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 Tablespoon(s) Sugar
Directions:
Mix the following in a NON METAL BOWL WITH NON METAL UTENSILS!!!!!!!
Mix the yeast and the first 1/2 c water together and let stand until
"yeasty". Then sift the dry stuff together, and combine it with the
yeast/water and the other 2 c of luke warm water. Mix well with a
non-metal spoon and let stand uncovered at room temp for 3-5 days,
covering only at night, and stirring 2-3 times a day. Remove 1 cup and
start the ten day ritual, as below. With the remaining mix, add 1/2 c
water, 1/2 c flour, and 1 t sugar. Let stand at room temp one day
(until very bubbly). Store covered in fridge for up to 10 days for in
recipes or as further starter. 10-day ritual (all done at room temp in
non-metal bowl) Day 1--you receive "Herman" and do nothing Day 2--stir
w/non metal (pref. wooden) spoon Day 3--stir Day 4--stir Day 5--add 1
c each of flour, sugar, and milk. Stir Day 6--stir Day 7--stir Day
8--stir Day 9--stir Day 10--"Herman is born!" Add 1 c each of flour,
sugar, and milk. Stir well. Pour 1 C each into 3 containers. Give to
friends/enemies with above instructions. Reserve one cup for
reprocessing for yourself. The friend who gave me this starter recipe
controls her batch by only adding 1/3 c of each ingredient on days 5
and 10. You can do this to prevent yourself from becoming overrun! The
bread recipe below is a good solution to the starter, but you end up
50 lbs overweight and have a freezer full of loaves unless you learn
to control the "Herman" or pass it on to friends. Amish Friendship
Bread To Remaining Batch of "Herman" (after you remove the 3 cups and
restart or pass them on) add the following. Remaining Herman 2/3 c oil
3 eggs 1 c nut/fruit of choice (applesauce, bananas, etc) 2 c flour 1
1/2 t baking powder 1 c sugar 3/4 salt 1/2 t soda 1 t cinnamon Mix
well and bake at 350 45-50 min. Makes 2 loaves. File
