"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Directions:
Starting from scratch, it takes 27 days before you can bake. (When you begin, it's easiest to start on the first day of the month.) From there on - your starter is ready to bake every 10 days.

2/3 c. sugar
2/3 c. milk
2/3 c. flour

Combine ingredients in a one-gallon plastic baggie or large, airtight container. Store at room temperature; do not refrigerate.
Stir starter with WOODEN SPOON (or smush baggie) every day for 17 days.
On day 18, do nothing.

On days 19, 20 and 21, stir.
On day 22 stir with wooden spoon and add: (Blend before adding)

1 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1 c. milk

On days 23, 24, 25 and 26, stir. On day 27, add:

1 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1 c. milk

Take out 1 cup three times. Give 1 cup each to 2 friends and keep 1 remaining cup to bake up and save 1 cup as starter for your next batch.
Friends can either make up bread the day they receive the starter (see the following recipe) or they can join in on the fun.
