Purchasing Yeast In A Jar

For many years I have been making my own bread, mainly because I like to know that I am eating healthy bread with no preservatives, etc. I used to purchase the yeast in a glass jar that had to be refrigerated once it was opened. It recently increased to $7.29 for a 4 oz. jar. Outrageous.


I decided to go to the health store where I purchase loose herbs & spices. The yeast is sold in 8 ounce containers (refrigerated) for $2.99. Very decently priced. Also purchase your herbs & spices loose in the health store as you are not paying for the containers as you do in the supermarkets plus they are fresh, fresh, fresh. Happy day to you.

even BETTER is to contact your local bakery supply. I go to FEDERAL BAKE MARK in Buffalo, New York and buy yeast by the KILO. Yes, ladies, 2.2 POUNDS of YEAST. The last time I got it , it was under EIGHT dollars for 2.2 POUNDS.

I bought 10. They last forever....shared some with friends, etc....

Sam's Club has 2 one pound packs for around $8.00, it has been a while since I got it. Store it in the freezer. In my area we have a store that sells bulk items in small amounts and I can get red star yeast for cheap. Good luck. I'm on my 6th bread machine.

I also was astonished at the price of a 4 oz. jar of yeast. I live in a very rural area, but my little hometown grocery store (and others) carrys a two pound sack of yeast for just a few more cents than the 4 oz. jar. It is made by Fleischman and is a foil lined sack so I just pour some into the 4 oz jar to store in the cupboard for everyday use. The rest of the sack is stored in the freezer waiting to refill the jar. I have been doing this daily for several years and have always had good success. If your local store doesn't carry this, just ask the manager if he can order it in.
