    Aroostook's Note:

    Capturing yeast spores is an ancient process. See if you can "trap" your own using potato water. Uses: Take one cup of starter and add to your favorite pancake recipe. Sour Dough Buckwheat waffles...Use a cup of starter in place of 2 pgks of yeast in your bread recipe.

      This was my first attempt at sourdough starter, and it worked really well. Made my first loaf of sourdough bread in my ABM yesterday, using the recipe in the book that came with the machine. DH and I each had two big toasted slices with supper. Delicious. Thanks for the good instructions and recipe.

      Made some cinnimon rolls and a loaf of bread and it turned out pretty well. It is really good toasted.
