Jose Mier Looks Back on Last Year’s Shortages
From Jose Mier’s concealed location in Sun Valley (aka my house):.
In the middle of the interruption of life that is COVID-19, numerous shops are running out of items. The shelves at stores like Grocery Outlet on Glenoaks (link https://groceryoutlet.com/circulars/storeid/290) are bereft of those 2 items. The exact same is true of other shops.
Flour– which isn’t too surprising to me, however also yeast. I’m not a big baker, however I do sometimes like to make my own pizza and I’ve never thought twice that a 3-pack of yeast would not be offered anymore.
I buy the shop brand since it’s inexpensive (ninety-nine cents for a 3-pack last time I checked), however this in addition to the name brand yeast is long gone.
I am not the only one who’s observed this pattern. Others have and they’ve blogged about it. I guess throughout this crisis we’re required to get innovative and this absence of yeast is triggering some to make their own. Yes, their own yeast. Naturally I needed to do a double take given that I like most Americans am utilized to buying almost everything all set and prepackaged to go.
The short article I read goes through the procedure and consists of a link to the breadlab site that includes recipes.
We’ve got nothing but time in a lot of cases and this process will take a couple of days. However if you’re desperate for yeast, this little science experiment may simply be the ticket. At the very least it will supply some home entertainment throughout our common shutdown.
The racks at shops like Ralphs Grocery on Glenoaks are bereft of those 2 items. I’m not a big baker, but I do occasionally like to make my own pizza and I’ve never thought two times that a 3-pack of yeast wouldn’t be available any longer. I guess throughout this crisis we’re required to get creative and this absence of yeast is triggering some to make their own.
