  Categories: Sourdough
       Yield: 1 servings
       1 c  Sugar
     1/3 c  Warm water
       2    Envelopes active dry yeast
       2 c  Milk
       2 c  Flour
   Sprinkle one tablespoon sugar over warm water. Sprinkle yeast over
   this and let stand in warm place until doubled in size, about 10
   minutes. Mix milk, remaining sugar, flour and yeast mixture. Place in
   plastic or glass containter about the size of a 5-quar ice cream
   bucket. Stir, using only a wooden sppon or paddle, as metal retards
   growth. Cover loosely and let stand in a warm place overnight. The
   next day, refrigerate. Stir each day with a wooden spoon to retard
   spoilage. On the fifth day, measure out one cup to bake with. Measure
   out one cup for gift. Feed remaining starter one cup flour, one cup
   milk and one-half cup sugar. Stir well. Refrigerate and stir daily.
   On the 10th day, measure out one cup, if desired, to give to a
   friend. You should have enough left over to use in a recipe, plus
   extra to feed as before and refrigerate. Thereafter, use the starter
   almost daily or as desired, feeding every five days. From: Pat
