SAF Red yeast is our test kitchen’s favorite all-around instant yeast. We use this very canister every day: it lives on the freezer door, where it gets a lot of handling. Our canister is going on 10 years old, so we can vouch for its durability.
What you get
- One pound vacuum-packed brick of SAF Red yeast, 4" x 6"acrylic canister with lock-tight gasketed lid (it fits on the door of most freezers), and a stainless steel yeast measuring spoon.
- The spoon measures 2¼ teaspoons, the standard amount used in yeast breads, as well as being the exact measurement of each grocery store yeast packets.
Care & storage
Store airtight at room temperature for 6 months; for longer life store in the freezer for up to 1 year.
Test kitchen tips
Yeast will stay stronger, longer if you keep it in the freezer. No need to thaw or warm it; you can measure it right from the freezer.
