You should also try to get out to Mistuwa Marketplace in Arlington Heights...EVERYTHING you will ever need in order to make maki, including sushi-grade whatever you want.

Yeast, SAF Instant v SAF Perfect Rise

Dear Chowhound forum members;

I'm an avid at-home pizza baker and have been faithfully using the bulk SAF Instant Yeast in order to make pizza dough (methods aside) and have had satisfactory results with the product, storing it in the freezer when I'm not using it to preserve freshness.

I've had some leftover SAF Perfect Rise yeast I had bought and forgot about in the cabinet and about a week ago, decided to use it in a recipe instead of my standby. I was surprised at the difference in that the results with the Perfect Rise seemed better, ie, higher rise.

Has anyone run into this before? Should I be storing my SAF Instant in the refrigerator instead of the freezer? Have I killed some of the SAF Instant in storing it in the freezer? Does opening a large package over keeping it in air-tight individual sealed packages somehow degrade the product? Just curious...let me know what you think!

Thanks.

Bulk Mushrooms

Indeed, thank you all so much for replying, I've located both portabello and crimini via Stanley's and have had good luck with some beautiful Shiitake at Caputos. I've heard about Woodman's and would like to explore next...Thanks for your help again!

Measuring spoons chain

Hi everyone,

I'm looking to replace a couple of chains that usually come with a set of measuring spoons, I've checked places like Home Depot without success...

I'm wondering if anyone else has replaced or would at least know of a place where I might find new chains? Ace??

Thank you.
