You found yeast??? I've been looking for over a month now. Everyone is sold out. I read somewhere that it takes a long time to make. Luckily I had just bought a 2nd 4oz jar when this all hit the fan, so I'm OK for now. Besides, all the stores have a normal supply of bread again, so the need isn't critical. Still, I'll probably buy extra next chance I get.
Yep, I could not find yeast or flour for a month. I am just now starting to see flour and some yeast. I decided to make my own sourdough bread and I am assuming this is what you meant?
The starter takes about 6-7 days depending on the temp in the room. But its worth it. Sourdough bread is great. You can make lots of things with sourdough starter.
And the question about 2lbs of active dry yeast for $5. Great price. You (above) did say Sam's? I'm not sure I have used 1lb of yeast in my whole life!
I plan to start baking. I never was inspired to be a pastry chef, but times have changed and I am now very interested.
Can ya believe at my age i just ate my first grilled cheese sandwich with home made bread. Nothing short of awesome. The next one gets a little chipped ham and no doubt that will be awesomer. Sure that's a word.
My favorite grilled cheese is with a slice of really good tomato. I balked at this until I had one made for me at my favorite beach pier many years ago.
It must be a great tomato and American cheese is fine. Real butter.
I now will not make grilled cheese anymore unless I have the tomato!
