Amish Bread starter can make so many delicious recipes which I will be sharing in other posts. You can make this starter with just a few ingredients and you do not keep it in the fridge. You will just want to make sure you have gallon zip lock bags when it is time to share. You will also want to have a sharpie marker so you can date them, along with the directions.

If you want, you can give them as gifts with a cute little recipe card tied with twine.

Enjoy!

Becky

After being self-employed for a majority of her adult life, Becky cannot imagine her work life being any other way. Just about an empty nester with her husband of over 21 years she enjoys the quiet. BUT sometimes misses the commotion. She is a Mom to 3 adult children, 2 boys and 1 girl (ages 26, 22, and 20 respectively) plus a daughter-in-law almost 25 years old. She is also the proud Grandma (or ma-ma) to Emma who is 6 1/2 years old and Zakary who is almost 2 years old. Becky lives out in the country and only misses the internet that a 'city/town' would offer.
