March 30/Day 89 - The Yeast Action

This picture was taken when I was making pizza last week. I love watching yeast grow. During the initial days of handling yeast, I felt really scared to see how fast the yeast grows. Watch closely next time, you add yeast to lukewarm water. You will be able to see how fast it grows! It turns frothy and grows faster when you add half a teaspoon of sugar along with the yeast!
