Regarding Amish Friendship Bread

Yummy stuff, but it is quite an endeavor to keep up with Amish Friendship Bread! As my aunt said when I told her I was baking some of this bread a few weeks ago, "Ah... it's a mixed blessing." I've never been successful at keeping up with this for long. In fact, it has been years since I have had some starter. I was wondering if you could freeze the starter or adapt the recipe at all, so I did a trusty Google search and quickly found some recipes and information, at Here are the recipes I found:
The editor's note for the starter recipe states that you can freeze the starter in 1-cup portions. You have to thaw it for at least 3 hours before using it. The comments for these recipes are very helpful too. I was able to play around with the recipe that I was given and use up all of the starter. I did make four new bags of starter that I froze. BTW, my instructions didn't say not to freeze it! Please, no negative comments on this controversial topic!

I have to tell you that my dogs love Amish bread starter because not more than 2 hours after you gave me some I found the bag on the floor in the family room completely empty.

I'd love more when you have some.
