How To Freeze Yeast

How Do You Freeze YeastYeast has a short shelf life and once any package of yeast has been opened, it should be kept in the freezer. I always use the small packets and I find that using a butterfly clip, the kind you can get at an office supply store, is a good way to seal up the packet for freezing. A paper clip would also work. I snip off the corner of the packet, measure what I need, fold the open corner over twice and seal it with the clip. Then I pop it in the freezer. – Jenny Jones

    OK- if you say we can freeze yeast, I will take your word for it. I never did, because in a very old “food chemistry” book I read, it said to NOT freeze yeast as it would kill the germ, it being a plant, and how plants are killed by freezing. I was never really sure about yeast, it being more like a germ than a plant (well, it’s both!) I have frozen it in the past but I think it did not perform as well as say, fresh yeast, but I could be “mis-remembering” have you noticed any weakness in the yeast post-freezing?

      I’m sorry I have never stored celery in water so you may have to look elsewhere for an answer. I show how I store my celery in the “How To” section of the blog.
