    I have a jar of spent raisins from 2 batches of Raisin Yeast Water I made a week ago. I don’t want to throw them away or use them in baked goods. To prevent the raisins from rotting, I’ve been shaking and aerating the jar everyday. There’s a little bit of liquid leftover from straining that has collected in the bottom of the jar. It’s fizzy just like the original yeast water.

    So I was wondering, can the spent raisins could be used a 2nd, 3rd, maybe 4th time to make more yeast water?

      Hi Wendy, thank you for visiting. The key to avoid to get your raisins from rotting to keep it in the fridge once your raisin yeast water is succeeded.
      It will last longer to maintain your raisin yeast water. I will recommend your unused raisin yeast water to refresh every two weeks at the latest.
      Yes, you can refresh your original yeast water to make another bottles, which is pretty easy.

      Happy baking,

      Hi james! How have you been? Than you so much for your word, which encourages me to get back to bake often. I am so glad to see you again! I also wish you and your family have a nice Christmas and wonderful New Year! That is funny that I was begged by my son to make sourdough

    Hi Akiko,

    I’ve been busy working especially this time of the year. I work for a young creative female chef/owner who is battling to keep her business floating. It’s been 9 months and I am the only person still around trying to help her fulfill her dream. Business has improved and I hope hard times are over. It is really difficult to start a new business!

      Hi James,

      Wow, you should have been busy! I agree that starting a new business is very tough. Thank you for keeping me updated. 🙂 That is very nice of you that you have been helping her so long. That is impressive.
      I have been trying to save money and clear our debt. lol So I can renovate our house ( fix..I mean.. 🙂 ) and get a new oven!!!
