We were given our Herman by some Canadian friends in a small jar simply labelled: ‘Herman’. After the confusion lifted, we worked our way through the 10 day schedule and developed an almost human relationship with the bubbling cake mix.
After stirring and feeding him for almost two weeks we got to the final stage of separating Herman up to give to others and baked the rest. It was truly delicious and the recommendation of having the matured Herman with Ice Cream was simple genius!
Herman now has a small family tree in this area and this continues to grow as friends of friends keep passing on the Herman goodness.
