Use one to make the bread recipe, keep one to use another time and give the other two to friends. (If you're making the cake, you'll need 2 cups.) Date the jars. Every 10 days, remove the starter from the refrigerator, transfer to a bowl and feed it with 1 cup each of milk, flour and sugar. Leave it out of the refrigerator uncovered for two days, then bake it or divide it among friends. Always save some for yourself.
