Herman the Sourdough Starter
of active yeast
or 1 package
Mix all ingredients in a glass bowl, cover and let stand overnight in a warm place. Don't cover too tightly (we just drape with a tea cloth / towel)
The next day, refrigerate covered, but stir daily. Five days later, measure out 1 cup of Herman for yourself, and the rest can be given to a friend! Now it's time to feed Herman.
Stir these ingredients into 1 cup Herman. Keep refrigerated covered.
On the 5th day, feed Herman again. Stir. Refrigerate. Cover. Stir everyday.
On the 10th day, measure out 1 cup of Herman to give away to a friend. As long as you have at least 1/2 cup of Herman, you can give it away and / or bake your heart away!
