Homemade yeast water for bread baking

Homemade yeast water for bread baking

This recipe shows you how to make your own yeast water for bread baking, perfect for times you cannot find yeast at the supermarket. I've had the best results making yeast water with apricots, but other dried fruits such as dates or figs are also possible. Reactivating the yeast water Two days before you are ready to bake bread again, remove the jar from the fridge. Storage tipWhen the yeast water is ready, use part of it for bread baking, and store the rest in the fridge like a sourdough starter for the next time you bake bread, then feed as described. Properly stored and fed like this, the yeast water can be used indefinitely.
