Riutzelj, what a nice gesture, thank you! But I found a jar of yeast this morning at our small market a mile from home!

I keep yeast in my refrigerator and use it beyond the best by date. It always works.

I haven't looked for any since last Fall. Granddaughter shopped for us yesterday. I last went shopping two weeks ago.

I never dreamed this 'stuff' would cause so much aggravation.

I have a 5 lb plastic container of buttermilk powder it in the freezer and use as needed. It is about three maybe four years old now and still good. I checked the price of it online and it very expensive from what I paid for this at Sam's Club but not sold there anymore. Sam's use to sell commercial baking products in bulk. I remember thinking when I bought it this sure is a lot but cheap. I'm glad I did buy it. Still using it when I don't have fresh buttermilk to use.

I bought a jar of yeast 7-8 months ago & questioned my move but I am now making a loaf a week with my bread machine & yeast on hand. Today I showed DH how to do this so he may have a new project going forward.

I think there was a link earlier, but I stumbled across this page today --


My mom had an "Old Timey" Alaskan cookbook and I remember there was rhyme/mnemonic thing about the colors of mold on sourdough. Sort of the thing like with snakes, Red meets Black/Friend to Jack, Red meets Yellow/Kill a Fellow, but about when you could keep a starter or start over. Did a little searching but haven't found it yet. Finding lots of interesting things about mold -- except that I have rather an aversion to it myself.
