The next day, refrigerate.

Stir each day with a wooden spoon to retard spoilage.

On the fifth day, measure out one cup to bake with.

Measure out one cup for gift.

Feed remaining starter one cup flour, one cup milk and one-half cup sugar.

Stir well.

Refrigerate and stir daily.

On the 10th day, measure out one cup, if desired, to give to a friend.

You should have enough left over to use in a recipe, plus extra to feed as before and refrigerate.

Thereafter, use the starter almost daily or as desired, feeding every five days.
