DEAR SOS: About six years ago, I received from a friend an Amish Friendship Bread starter, one of those batters in a sealed bag that you feed and knead for 10 days before splitting, baking and passing on. I did not keep some starter for myself, and friends have been asking me for “The Bread,” my version of the baked recipe. Any idea where I can get the starter recipe?
DEAR SHAWN: Here’s a friendship story: We found this recipe on the Internet from RecipeSource.com (http://www.recipesource.com). The Web site grew out of a collection of recipes begun in 1993 by Jennifer Snider, a student at UC Berkeley. When her friends found out she had collected thousands of recipes from the Internet, they helped her found the all-volunteer site, which now has 70,000 recipes. We’ve included the baked version.
