2 c. flour
2 c. warm water
1 env. (1/4 oz.) active dry yeast


Let Herman incubate overnight in a loosely covered container in a warm place. The next day add 1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup milk and 1 cup flour and stir with a wooden spoon. Then refrigerate and stir at least once a day. On the fifth day feed him again. At the end of 10 days give a cup to a friend, keep a cup and feed it and use remaining two cups to make coffee cake, crumpets, cake, oatmeal cookies or even blueberry pancakes. Or you could experiment and make pizza dough. If you can't use Herman on the 10th day, feed him a teaspoon sugar, then use the next day. Whole wheat flour may be used also.

1 c. flour

1 c. milk

1/2 c. sugar

Mix flour, milk and sugar; makes one batch of Herman Food. Mix food with Herman Starter (the mixture will be lumpy). Cover bowl loosely with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator. Stir daily. On fifth day feed again.
