Recently, gem gave me a starter kit for Amish Friendship Bread. It’s a bag filled with some goop along with instructions that basically boil down to “mash the bag most days, add some stuff on day 6, and add more and bake on day 10.” On day 10, however, you add some ingredients, mix, create four new starter kits, and then finish preparing your bread. In this way, you keep passing it forward.
She also included a slice of her bread – blueberry bread! It was delicious.
Here I had everything I needed sitting on the table while I prepared the bread.
I decided to make apple cinnamon raisin bread. You can see the raisins pretty clearly, and the light colored chunks were diced apple.
I almost forgot to take a picture before it went in the oven.
An hour later, I had what certainly looked like bread.
I was anxious to try some because it was getting late, I was very hungry, and I had more things to do that night.
Because I was going out of town the next day, I needed to deliver the starter kits to my friends even though it was almost midnight.
I brought a starter to kit and slice of my bread to Anela first. She was nice enough to not mind me disturbing her so late. Next I drove to my mom’s. They were sleeping, so I left it hanging on their door. One kit went back to gem. My last kit I dropped off the next day at lunch at Purple Yoga for Sean, an instructor there!
Nom, nom nom.
It was super tasty!
