    Default Bulk food buying

    Greeting from SW Arkansas; I've been diagnosed with cancer; the

    treatments have really put restrictions on my shopping abilities. I

    said all that to tell you this. I'm starting to buy at the Sam's Club

    in Texarkana; I bought 2 lbs of yeast for a really good price. Now can

    someone tell me how to keep it fresh? I found a good buy on corn meal

    in a plastic 3 lb, tub with a screw on lid. Do I need to put it in the

    freezer or will it stay bug free in the tub? Thanks in advance for your

    help.

    I also buy my yeast at Costco in a bulk bag. I fill an old jar of

    yeast that I bought at the grocery store for my all the time use, and I

    keep the rest of the yeast in the freezer. In the past, I found that

    if if you keep the yeast too long just in the cupboard, it loses it's

    potency. The freezer preserves it from deteriorating. Just remember

    to let it warm to room temp before tryinng to use it.



    I also keep my cornmeal in the freezer. IT will get inhabitants

    quickly if you don't!

    I put my yeast (opened bag or new) into a ziploc bag and keep in on a cool shelf (I live in a fairly cool, dry area). It stays good for a couple years. I used to keep it in my fridge when I lived in a hot area.

    On your cornmeal,I would put it in the freezer or at least in the fridge.I have found that no matter how tite the lid the critters still get in there and short of putting a plastic bag in first then putting on the lid then covering the entire thing again with a plastic baggy it is just better to store in the freezer.Not sure about the yeast but hubbys mom told me to never freeze yeast and to store in fridge but make sure to use before expiration date.If any of you all have different idas with tried and true methods please advise me as well.Oh and greetings from Missouri(the Ozarks)

    I bought a 2 pound bag 5-6 years ago of yeast. I store it in an air tight tupperware contianer and leave it in the fridge. The secret to using, take out what you need and let it warm up to room temps before adding to water.
