Why can't I use metal
« on: April 19, 2014, 12:53:04 PM »
I have seen many times on starter and friendship bread recipes that you can't use any metal utensils, bowls, containers, etc. They don't say why or what happens if you mistakenly do. Can anyone fill me in?

So long as the metal is stainless, probably nothing bad will happen. Other metals might react with the acids if you leave it in contact long enough. I almost always mix my dough in a stainless bowl.

What is "friendship bread?"
Pizza is not bread.

I always mix my starter with a stainless spoon.  Hasn't killed it yet

Friendship bread is an Amish bread that is sweet, the starter and recipe is written to share with friends. There is a lady down the road that sells heirloom tomato plants (100 varieties) that gave me the starter ( called it Herman) and the recipe. Unfortunately I got the recipe by taking a cell phone pic and it turned out blurry. She told me to stop by next week and she would get me a copy.
