Re: Amish Friendship Bread

"Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it, you can never get it back."

 

If you do it in a ziplock bag, the gases from the yeast will build up in the bag and you have to let them out every day or the bag will eventually pop, making  a mess.

And when we made it, we did joke around at work about the "rotten milk".  But I really think it has to do with the yeast, as it consumes the sugar and the sugars naturally found in the milk and breaks the milk down from its usual composition... incidentally, the byproduct of this cycle is the gas that builds up in the bag.  Also, I figure that any bacteria would be killed during the cooking process.  I do not know anyone who has gotten sick from this recipe.
