      Peggy, this sounds like a very interesting recipe for a starter but can you be more specific with directions? How long can I keep this starter and do I have to feed it regularly ? How much should I use if I were to add it to a bread recipe? Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

      This will be the next sourdough starter that I make. The friendship starter is just a bit too sweet for every bread. Thank you for posting.
