    MrsJ's Note:

    The starter is a yeasty, fruit mixture that adds flavor and moisture to a fruit-filled 'friendship cake.' The starter is allowed to ferment and 'grow' much like a sourdough starter. When working with the starter mixture, keep it at room temperature and covered, but not airtight. If you get tired of it, freeze it, then use later. You may substitute 2 cups of dried apples for the apricot halves. Cooking time does not include time to ferment the fruit. This recipe is from an old newspaper clipping. It is used to prepare Friendship Cake
