Did You Know?

Amish Friendship Bread Starter is essentially a sourdough starter with a lactobacillus culture. Because there’s so much sugar in most Amish Friendship Bread recipes, the result is sweet, slightly tangy twist. Like most sourdough starters, Amish Friendship Bread can literally be passed around indefinitely; in fact, the longer it has been around, the better. As long as you continue to feed your starter, it can stay at room temperature. Did you know you can freeze your starter if you need to take a break?
