About a week and a half ago someone at church gave me a bag of mush with directions on how to take care of it. She said it was easy, so I said I would give it a try. Some of y'all have probably heard of, or tried it. It's called Friendship bread, supposedly started by the Amish.
The directions said to mush the bag every day. On the sixth day you're supposed to add more ingredients to the bag and mush again. You keep mushing until the tenth day, then you add some more stuff and split it up. You put the parts you split into baggies to give to someone else as a starter for the bread.
I was kind of skeptical of this whole thing. It said to put all this cinnamon in it and on top. Since it made 3 pans of bread, I decided to make 2 without the cinnamon and one with it, beacuse I wasn't sure if I would like all that cinnamon.
As it turns out, without cinnamon, it tastes pretty much like cake. Nothing like bread! My oldest son loves the cinnamon one. He said it is the best thing ever. Maybe I should have made them all with cinnamon. But, heck, I was expecting it to be bread, not cake! Have you ever tried it? Do you like it?
