I Need Cheaper Baking Yeast

I've seriously got to sort organizing this office and catching the calendar up and returning phone calls, BUT, I'm wondering if any of you out there in Internet Land know of a good cheap source of Fermipan Yeast. I'm sick of Flieschmans, its cost, its coming only in small quantities, its big fat granules. Anyone? Anyone? Come quickly to my aid. I'll be here sorting through bits of annoying paper refreshing every few minutes to see if anyone has commented.

Perhaps your grocer can order it for you? Our local grocer started carrying leeks just because my mother asked for them. Can't hurt to ask.

I've heard good things about this web site, but don't know how competitive the price is.

Scroll down the page about halfway.

I recently bought SAF-instant yeast in a l lb package for $6.95 from (Sorry I don't know how to do links.) I don't know how that price compares to what you've found.

By the way, I enjoy your blog. Since I'm an avid cook I especially enjoy your comments and photos on cooking. Your recent trifle looked delicious. I copied a couple of articles from Fine Cooking on trifles to send you and haven't gotten around to it yet. I thought you might enjoy them.

I'm a regular reader of StandFirm and that's how I found your blog. Keep up the good work, both cooking and church.

Can't help you with the yeast issue, but just wanted to propose a little bonding. I have a little bloggie about food ( that I have been writing as an easy means of passing on my culinary tricks of the trade to my kids and other family members (OK--I haven't adding anything in 2008, but my OTHER blog, www.anglikin, , has been keeping me VERY busy!)

Happy baking!

Kathryn (aka "Anglicat")

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll let you know when I lay my hands on it.

Kathryn, thanks for sharing the links to your blogs. Both have typos it appears. I was able to find both once I'd noticed and corrected them:

(you were missing the second i in nutrition)


(you had a comma instead of a period in the url)

Anne, I too love it when you share recipes, and Kathryn, your nutrition blog looks excellent. Thanks for sharing the links.

You can usually find yeast in bulk at your local natural foods co-op. Like that you can get as much or as little as you need and it saves on money and packaging. (There is also bulk yeast at stores like Whole Foods, but it won't be cheaper since the nickname "Whole Paycheck" which we used in California is apt... Food co-ops are cheaper, certainly mine is here in North Carolina and the ones I know in various parts of the U.S. are too.)

Do you know Jennifer's food blog,Cookin' in the 'Cuse? It's wonderful. She's a priest in central New York state. In addition to her parish and university chaplaincy work, she also keeps track of sustainable (and delicious) food in her region. Great photos too, recipes, and links.
