Featured Product:

SAF Yeast
We are very excited about our SAF yeast. Higher rises and always dependable results make SAF a staple in our pantry. We didn't know what we were missing. Try some yourself. It's amazing.

Helpful Hint:

It's always best to make the medium size of an unfamiliar recipe before you do the large size. Some bread pans just don' t have the capacity for certain large recipes. This is the easiest way to find out.

Tools We Love:

We love large plastic bags for our breads. You can order them from BakerBag or King Arthur Flour.

The Inside Scoop:

Our first book Bread Machine Magic has been revised to include large or 2 pound loaves. Look for it in March, or ask your bookstore to order it for you.

Fortunately, SAF(USA) Corporation is continuing to manufacture the two brands of yeast. RED STAR and SAF Yeast will both be in the market. If you would like FREE samples, send an e-mail to carol.stevens@redstaryeast.com or write to Carol Stevens, RED STAR Yeast, P. O. Box 737, Milwaukee, WI 53201.

A Little Humor:

Two weevils grew up in a sack of flour. One went to Hollywood and became a famous actor. The other stayed behind and never amounted to much.

The second one, naturally, became known as the lesser of two weevils
