30 day amish friendship starter
use a gallon glass jar; keep covered loosely with cheesecloth and let stand 
at room temperature. stir each day or so with a wooden (non-metal) spoon. 
add ingredients as direct. 
  1st day: 1 1/2 cups starter juice, 15 to 29 ounce can sliced peaches, with
  juice, 2 1/2 cups sugar
  7th day: 15 to 20 ounce can chunk pineapple with juice, 2 1/2 cups sugar
  14th day: 15 to 20 ounce can crushed pineapple with juice, 2 1/2 cups sugar
  21st day 2- 6 to 9 ounce jars maraschino cherries, drained and quartered, 2
1/2 cup  sugar
  30th day: use fruit for cakes or other recipes; divide starter juice and
  begin again.
note: this 30 day method makes an interesting recipe, but all fruits and 
the total 7 1/2 cups sugar may be added the first day if desired. follow 
directions for in "starting the starter: for stirring and storing. 
if you don't have any starter, the following is the recipe to make it: 
fruits as listed in the starter above, 2 packages dry active yeast, 7 1/2 
cups sugar 
put all fruit in a large mouth gallon jar. sprinkle yeast over fruit. add 
sugar. stir with a wood (non-metal) spoon. cover jar with cheesecloth and 
let stand at room temperature for 2 to 6 weeks, stirring every day or so. 
after this time, fruit and liquid may be put into pint jars and sealed for 
storage in the refrigerator. when ready to use, drain fruit and save the 
juice, this is the starter. divide the juice into separate containers of 1 
1/2 cups each. you will have enough juice to make 3 to 5 starter. the fruit 
and/or juice starter may be frozen for future use. after dividing the 
"working" starter into 1 1/2 cup portions, give each to a friend along with 
  recipe for cake:
1 box  yellow cake mix
2/3 cup  cooking oil
4   eggs
1/2 cup  of fruit juice ( from reserved juice)
1-1/2 cup  fruit, coarsely chopped
1 small  box instant vanilla pudding
1 cup  nuts
drain fruits and give the juice to friends for their starter(1 1/2 cups 
mix ingredients together and bake at 350 in a bundt pan for 40 to 50 
mins.(i used 9x13x2, 50 to 60 min) 
baking time can vary according to extras added and how wet fruit is. it's 
done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 
there is enough fruit to do three cakes..or if you prefer more fruit (i do) 
just divide the fruit in half and make two. you can also freeze half the 
fruit if you only want to make one at a time. 
you can use different flavors of cake mix or pudding 
(yellow cake with butter pecan or pineapple pudding; strawberry cake with 
french vanilla pudding; orange cake with coconut pudding; or banana nut 
cake with butterscotch pudding.) 
nuts, coconut, or raisins are optional 
to finish you can glaze the cake or add icing, cream cheese frosting is 
wonderful on it.
