Where I live, cream of tartar is outrageously expensive. Is that just a Canadian problem?

This is homemade baking powder that does not contain aluminum. I like it, since I want to keep aluminum out of my family's diet, and it works just as well as store bought baking powder.

Ingredients:

  • 2 parts cream of tartar
  • 1 part baking soda
  • 1 part cornstarch or arrowroot

Directions:

Sift together all ingredients. Mix well and store in an airtight container.
