To make the bread: take 1 C of the starter and bring it to room temperature. Pour it into a large mixing bowl and add 1/2 C warm water, 1 pkg of dry yeast, 1 tsp sugar or honey, 2 Tbs melted butter and mix. Add enough flour (5-6 C) to make a stiff dough, mixing it in 1 C at a time. Knead the dough thoroughly. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover. Let the dough rise until doubled, punch it down and shape it into loaves, allow it to raise again, and bake it for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees F. If you want to be fancy, use a sharp knife to slash the top of each loaf before allowing it to rise the second time.
