Confession: I have over two pounds of yeast in my freezer. Why? Well, I make bread just about every week and I often use recipes that measure yeast per teaspoon instead of per packet. Yeast is also less expensive when it’s bought in bulk and I like having it on hand. I like not having to think about whether I need yeast or not every week. But, I also like that I am the kind of person that has yeast (both rapid rise and active dry) on hand at all times. To me that says: she’s careful, she’s methodical, she’s creative, she’s productive, she cares about what she eats, she cares about what she feeds her family. And although those things aren’t necessarily always true about me, I think they must sometimes be true, or I wouldn’t be hoarding yeast.
