I was reading this on The Guardian's online pages & thought that what a perfect little gift this starter would make. You could tuck a small pot of it into peoples stockings along with a copy of the cake recipes & the instructions for keeping 'Herman' alive. It would be great fun for children too (holidays being a time that we need to think up activities for them). The recipes are in the 2nd link.
I can remember eating these cakes when I was working in various theatre costume workshops in the US. People would bring in various goodies, cakes, salads etc to share. They frequently bought in pots of the starter for their workmates.
"The beautiful is as useful as the useful...perhaps more so."
from Les Miserables
I read that, and I think I got a jar of that in the US too . Lots of the recipes used cake mixes or pudding mix to make them but some were good old fashioned use proper ingredients recipes too.
