A looong time ago a friend gave me a bag of mush and told me to follow the rules – to knead it, add things to it, and speak nice things to it, and one day it would turn into a glorious loaf of Amish Bread. This bread is made with a sweetened sourdough starter that you typically receive from a friend (that's why it's called Friendship Bread). The "legend" is that it was first "started" by the Amish who gave it to friends who then turned around and gave it to their friends and so on until a batch found its way to. I have always loved Amish Friendship Bread, but I moved to a new town where I don't know many people. A classic bread that's made to be shared, gift bags of starter to friends and family so they can spread the love.
