Well, first, Liz, the differences I know of between sourdough starter and everlasting yeast is the amounts of flour in each recipe -- sourdough has a bit more, the yeast has just enough to 'grow' the yeast itself and keep it alive.
And the 'sour' effect. You want that with sourdough starter, but not with everlasting yeast. With the yeast you are just keeping the yeast 'alive' so that you always have a supply.
But, that's not much knowledge really. I have a jar this morning, ready to either use or go to the fridge. It's a great deal of opaque-ish liquid and a small layer of settled flour stuff at the bottom.
And I still don't know what on earth I'm doing. Do I just take the liquid as it, using it as the liquid in the recipe for my bread? Do I stir the liquid and settled stuff together then take my amount?
We'll give the liquid bit a try today in a single loaf recipe.
Aside from that, sewing...5 more pairs of boys pants. Then, if there's time, a dress and 6 boy's shirts for a friend. I just don't know that I can get them all finished by the time they are needed, but we'll see.
And this little gem or two...remember those Somali Pirates attacking all those ships? Seems they are idiots. No, really. They attacked the flag ship of the French Navy by mistake. LOL.
And the Health Care Bill...we're at $829 billion of course, billion with a big B, and it will cover about 94% of the population, natural and legally registered.
So, all that money, all that further debt mire, and there will still be a select few (they are expecting closer to 25 million people actually) who won't have diddly. I suppose that's something good...right now they estimate we have about 50 million without coverage of any kind.
Ahh, yes, progress.
Now to go make my own progress...
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
