Thread: Any uses for post mortem yeast?

    Default Any uses for post mortem yeast?

    I found a 1 lb. still-sealed bag of baking yeast in the back of a cupboard
    dead as hell. It is years old and barely foams after proofing.

    Other than a proper landfill funeral I am wondering if there are any
    possible uses for it -- as nutrients ala adding Wheat Germ, that type of
    thing -- or maybe fish food (?) (looks kind of like it.) Sprinkle it on
    peanut-butter toast? Non-food uses -- make a paste for a facial? Who knows,
    I don't -- any suggestions or warnings?

    j.

    This might sound crazy but yeast is my secret ingredient to make
    chicken fried tofu. I'm from the south (of the US) and love everything
    chicken-fried, but my significant other is a vegetarian. After many
    failed experiments trying to make tofu in a way I could enjoy, this is
    what we discovered. Just use the yeast with a little black and/or red
    pepper and salt as the coating for the tofu. It infuses it with a
    meaty flavor and is just about the only coating we could ever manage
    to stay on the tofu (it weeps a little when cooking).

    Like I said, I know this is really weird, but hey maybe you will be as
    astonished at the results as I was.
