Default Where's the yeast???

It seems there's a run now on active dry yeast for bread baking....all our local stores, Amazon (in small quantities) and even Fleischmann's are out. Does anyone know a source? Thank you!

I managed to snag 3 strips of yeast (9 packets) during a target run.....but that was about a week ago....I looked for it...didn't see any then way on the bottom shelve there was a box that said "quick rise yeast"...yikes...it was a whole box....then I noted it said "remove" for display...ahhh….someone had just thrown the box on the shelve....so I opened the display window and took three of the strips which rang up just fine.....if you don't have any luck finding some....you could look up "making sour-dough starter from scratch". there are some recipes on the web....it takes a few days....but does work...also, I have made "Irish soda bread"...also tastes good but doesn't call for yeast...I do think it calls for baking soda...but I haven't made that for a while...

Yikes! I checked Bob's Red Mill and they are out too.

Was going to suggest the sourdough thing too. I used a "Herman" for a long time, a sweet dough starter. Here's the no yeast version of starter:
https://www.cooks.com/recipe/h90zw19...hip-bread.html

I baked weekly with my starter for a couple of years until we went low carb, I kept it in a heavy plastic ice cream container with a lid on top of my dishes in my cabinet year round. You do need to feed it and use it.

The plain Herman rolls and such are very much hot breads, they don't store well but they start getting fancy when you put in stuff like pudding mix! For recipes just search with the term Herman.

Glen & Friends Cooking is a Canadian cooking show on YouTube and he did the easy bread recipe this week with yeast. He is doing a series on what to cook during Covid quarantine. He showed that if yeast is in short supply, pinch off about a walnut size chunk and start feeding it in a separate container for a bread starter for another day. This won’t help you if you are out of yeast now but something to try at a later date?

Tropit, there are several recipes on YouTube for sour dough starter. Do you have a favourite to share?

I prefer to make no-knead bread that bakes in a dutch oven for a beautiful rustic loaf. Not sure if/how I could substitute starter in that particular recipe

Thanks for all the responses so far.

Here is the one I have used with great success. Once stared it’s easy to keep and maintain and makes amazing bread.

If your wanting a wealth of info on all things bread this is my go to site.

I do Keto and no longer make bread, and did toss my sourdough starter a while back, but may have to get back into it, if only to share with my neighbors.
