    1       pk           Active dry yeast
      1/2   c            Warm potato water
      1/2   c            Milk
      1/2   c            Butter or margarine
    1       c            Sourdough Starter
      1/4   c            Sugar
    2       ts           Salt
    4 1/2   c            To 5 all-purpose flour
                         Butter -- melted (opt)
   Dissolve yeast in potato water; let set until foamy, 5
   to 10 min. Heat milk and 1/2 c butter or margarine
   until just melted; cool to lukewarm. Combine starter,
   yeast mixture, milk mixture, sugar and salt. Add flour
   to make a stiff dough; knead until smooth and elastic.
   Place in a greased bowl; turn dough to coat surface.
   Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts,
   until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch down dough; cover
   and let rest 10 minutes.  Shape into rolls. Place on a
   greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise in a warm
   place, free from from drafts, until doubled, about 45
   minutes. If desired, brush with melted butter or
   margarine before baking in a preheated 375F oven for
   12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 3 to 4
   Notes: I skipped the last optional butter step and
   used plain warm water and they turned out well but did
   not rise too much.  Take it for what it’s worth.
