Since so many of you have been talking about breadmaking lately, I just thought I would tell all you new breadmakers(or newly frugals) that you can purchase yeast at a health food store for about 1/3 the price of the strips at the grocery store. I paid under $6 for 1 lb. at the health food store compared to the grocery store’s .99 for a 3/4 oz.
strip. And in case you’re not sure, each envelope of a strip is 2 1/4 t., so if your recipe calls for 1 packet of yeast, use 2 1/4 t. of your cheaper, bulk yeast.
