This is a recipe from Cocina Cubana/ Sonia Martinez/ Pascual Perez. I have not tried this recipe. I am adding it to 'zaar because there have to uses for sourdough starter besides traditional sourdough and Amish Friendship Bread. I doubt that I will ever use the lard, which is recommended for authentic flavor. My bread machine makes sourdough starter, so I am hoping to play with this recipe on the bread machine. If I can figure out a bread machine version, then I'll add that, too. Note: Preparation time does not include the development time to make the starter, which is at least 24 hours. Also, if you've never made starter, I recommend you research a little bit. It's not difficult but there are a couple rules for success.
