yeast

Did I get a shock today, as I am almost out of yeast I phoned around to see who sells the one pound vacuum packs of it.


 A couple of places only sold fresh cake yeast which I did not want at this time, I do use it on the odd occasion.


Any way  I finally found a place that sold it at $7.99 a pound, last time I bought it was $4 some thing. wow. so I continued to phone around and the next place was $9.99. Blow that.


 Then I called National Grocers , yes they had what I wanted , and yes I could buy it from them, $5.99.


 So shop around if you are in the market for yeast.... qahtan

Check out www.nybakers.com.  A pound of yeast is $4.95 plus whatever shipping is.  The proprieter is one of us, and he charges a minimum for shipping.


Of course, if you're out of yeast NOW, ...
