I've been moved to try to make a soy free, peanut free, milk free bread and that means starting my own starter. So, let me take you on this adventure with me. Here's to hoping it works.
I used the Amish Friendship Bread recipe from Allrecipes.com - obviously it's modified. Let's begin.
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Let stand 10 minutes. In a 2 quart glass or plastic container, combine 1 cup flour and 1 cup sugar. NOTE: I used a 1 quart mason jar, but I know I will be transfering it from this original container when I have to add more almond milk, flour, and sugar. This is also an experiment, let's say that it doesn't work out, I won't have a huge container that's been taking up space on the counter for four days. END NOTE Mix thoroughly the flour and sugar mixture and slowly stir in 1 cup vanilla almond milk Then stir in dissolved yeast mixture. Cover loosely (I'm using a blue towel, you can use a cheesecloth) and let stand until bubbly. Consider this day 1 of the 10 day cycle. Leave loosely covered at room temperature.
PS. Pictures to follow soon.
