(Yeast Starter)

2 cups flour
3 tablespoon sugar
1 pkg active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups warm water

In large bowl mix flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Gradually stir in
the water; beat or whisk until smooth. Cover with towel; set in
warm draft- free place. Stir 2 or 3 times a day for about 3 days
or until starter is bubbly an produces a yeasty aroma. Transfer to
larger bowl, large jar or plastic container. Cover partially (tilt
lid or punch holes in plastic cover); refrigerate.

Makes about 1-1/2 to 2 cups starter, depending on thickness. It
can be creamy or as thick as dough because of room conditions, the
age of "Herman" and other variables.

And if it's longer than 14 days, put it in the freezer until you're
ready. The flavor of this starter evolves as it ages- mildly sweet
when young, more like sourdough when older. Care and Feeding of
"Herman" The starter should be used within 14 days and replenished
or fed immediately after each use. To feed starter, stir or whisk
in 1 cup each flour and milk and 1/2 cup sugar; mixture need not
be completely smooth. Wait at least 24 hours before using again.
If you do not plan to use the starter within 14 days, cover tight
and freeze. Freezing slows down the fermentation, so let stand at
room temperature several hours or till thawed and bubbly before
