I know yeast can be collected wild,but I have no idea what they might have used as baking soda or powder substitutes.thanks sweeper
outta curiosity more than anything , i wonder what was used in the recipes before baking soda and yeast packs were around? Seems an awful lot of the recipes use them. I figured there would be more basic ingredients used than what there are
Wild yeast can be caught on a breeze,also the white "powder " on some berries is a natural yeast.How did the native americans get baking powder and dry yeast packages?
Not being a smartass, seriously. They must have had a method of carrying around yeast, keeping it alive, acquiring it?
