Bread That Takes Ten Days to MakeI have been looking and asking around for quite a while now, I used to have a recipe for a kind of bread that takes 10 days to make. You get a large ziplock bag and put 3 ingredients in it, 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of sugar,i am not sure of the ingredients, and close up the baggie and squash the bag working the bag back and forth, up and down and every which way but loose, then lay it on your kitchen counter for about 3 days I think.
