Preparation of date yeast with sugar


Necessary tools and materials
500 ml of pure water.
Two dates without seeds, raisins, pieces of fresh apple, or any other fruit.
A teaspoon of sugar or honey.
A clean glass jar or glass jar.


Work steps


Make sure the jar is completely clean, and to ensure complete fermentation success, it is best to clean it using a teaspoon of baking soda with 4 cups of hot water, then rinse it with hot water.
Put the amount of sugar and water in the jar, then chop the dates or fruit into small pieces and add them to it.
Close the jar, but do not tighten it, to allow the gas from the reaction to escape.
Place the jar in a warm place, but out of sunlight.
Leave it for 3 to 8 days, but open the cap once a day for a few minutes to change the air, release the pressure, close it again, shake the bottle well to introduce oxygen into the water, then close the cap again.
After 2 to 3 days you will notice bubbles appearing, and in the next stage the water will become cloudy, and the number of bubbles will increase.
When the bubbles have decreased, the yeast is ready to use.


How to use


Take the yeast out of the fridge before baking the bread and let it come to room temperature, then shake the bottle because the yeast is on the bottom.
f your recipe calls for 200ml of water, you should use 135ml of yeast water, so you should only add 65ml of pure water to the dough.
Leave the dough for a longer time than usual, as the time depends on the strength of the yeast water.
