Clever tip of the day: Convert an old canning jar into a container with a pour spout!
I buy my yeast in bulk because I make a lot of bread. It is so much cheaper than buying the tiny jars or individual packets. The yeast pictured below is a 1 pound brick and it cost $2 or $3. That is a huge savings. The only bummer about bulk yeast is how to store it easily. Well, listen up, friends, because I have the solution:
Just chop the top off an empty cardboard salt container, cut it to the size of a canning lid and use the canning ring to screw it in place.
Then you can put the whole thing in the back of the fridge and the next time you bake, you can easily pour the yeast into your measuring spoons. Plus, the jar is see-through so you can keep track of how much you have left.
This would also be great for storing spices, baking ingredients, or powder laundry detergent bought in bulk.
So the only question left is,
what are you going to put in your pour-spout jar?
