blue ribbon leavening

 The making of your own baking powder is so simple and economical. And the quality of it is steps above the canned sort you purchase at the grocery store.

 1/4 cup cream of tartar
 2 tablespoons baking soda

Sift together 3x and store in a clean, dry tight-sealing jar at room temperature, out of direct sunight, for 4 weeks.

This may be used for any recipe that requires baking powder. I give it a blue ribbon.

*Also, I have used it only recently with a batch of biscuits and it was over 4 weeks old, still worked like a charm.

Wow, very handy to know this. I would have never guessed I could make it myself.

Wonderful, Cathy! Thank you for sharing this! I knew there was a way to make baking powder, but I hadn't found a recipe yet. I'm getting low, so I will be making this soon!

Blessings!

Thanks for sharing that. I've always wondered what was the addition in baking powder that made it special. Now I know, and next time I'll give it a try.
