Everlasting Yeast

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by Kzim4

This will make a small amount of purchased yeast last indefinitely....hence the name! Got this recipe from a church-produced cookbook. Prep time is just a guess.

Am in the process of using this-it reminds me of a potato sour dough receipe I have been using for years-in that recipe the taste gets better with age and am hoping this one does. Will let you know. Thank you. Margie

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl (do not use metal bowl or utensils).
  2. Place mixture in a warm place to raise until ready to mix for baking.
  3. Leave a small amount of mixture (approximately 1/3 cup) for a start for next time.
  4. Between uses, keep in a covered jar in the fridge until a few hours before ready to use again.
  5. Add same ingredients except yeast to the remaining start for the next baking.
  6. By keeping the everlasting yeast start and remaking some each time, yeast can be kept on hand indefinitely.
