    What is Herman used in baking?

    This is one for the "you learn something new every day" file.

    Herman starter is a colloquialism (of unknown origin) for a honey- or sugar-sweetened starter used primarily for sweet breads. (Source: Epicurious)

    Thus, Herman is similar to the starter mixtures for Friendship Bread or Sourdough Bread.

    Given that, it is probably not something you can buy, but need to make, yourself. Astray Recipes has instructions for how to make it.

    Very interesting. Good luck.
