Replenishing the Starter: Every time you use some of he starter, you must

replace it with a like amount of milk and flour. For instance if you use 1

of starter, return 1 cup of milk AND 1 cup of flour to the jar. Follow
these directions for feeding the starter.

Feeding the starter to keep it alive: A starter should be used as often
as possible, at least every 2-3 weeks. If you are not using it that often,

pla to feed it once a month to keep it going. 1. Bring to room
temperature. 2. Add equal amounts of warm milk (90-100) and flour
(1/2-1cup each) 3. Cover with lid and allow to stand in a warm place
(70-100 degrees) for twelve to 24 hours until bubbly and a clear liquid
has formed on top. 4. Stir, cover loosely (set lid on jar but do not
tightly seal; gasses must allow to escape), and refrigerate Rejuvenating
a Neglected Starter: If you forget to feed your starter month don't throw
it away thinking its gone bad. Chances are you can still revive it. 1.)
pour off the liquid and discard all but 1 to 2 tablespoons of the starter.

Temporarily place reserved starter in a bowl. 2.) Wash out the starter
container with hot water. 3.) Put the starter back into the container. 4.)

Follow the directions for feeding the starter using 1 cup (warm (90-
100'F) skim (nonfat milk ) and 1 cup flour 5. You may have to repeat this
procedure once or twice to bring it back up bubbly, sour smelling again.
