My church family and family loves this bread. I received the starter, from a friend, with a loaf of bread about seven years ago. I have had it ever since and keep it fed and my friend had told me if I ever get tired of feeding it and making bread to freeze it and it will be fine. Just take out and let unthaw then feed, it will start its progress all over again. She even had the recipe for starting a starter of your very own. I have even made a cake from it instead of bread and frost it with cream cheese frosting...yum!
