If you are an avid baker and love to try new ways to make something you love to make taste even better, then why not try making this recipe for Apple-based Yeast. You can use it for anything that requires yeast in the recipe, and it brings a tang and sweetness to the recipe. There is a lot of preparation and time required to make this recipe since you have to let it ferment and form the yeast, but the results are a wonderful and tasty option.

Ingredients

  • 1 kilogram wheat flour
  • 1 apple (organic, grated)
  • 680 milliliters water

Directions

  1. Mix 500 grams of flour with the grated apple (keeping the skin) and 340 ml of water.
  2. Pour this mixture into a large container or jar.
  3. Close the container and allow to ferment for 3 days
  4. After 3 days, the dough will start fermenting, smell somewhat close to cider, and begin to darken and fatten creating bubbles.
  5. Remove half of the yeast and discard.
  6. Add 250 grams of flour and 170 ml of water, mix well and allow to rest for 2 more days.
  7. The increase of small bubbles will confirm the yeast's activity.
  8. Once again remove half of the yeast and discard.
  9. Add 250 grams of flour and 170 ml of water, mix and allow to rest 24 hours.

This did take me some time to figure out because there are so many different steps. I messed it up the first time, but I nailed it on the second try. It really isn't so bad, if you keep track of what you're doing.
