Proofing Yeast

To make sure active dry yeast (not quick-rise yeast) is alive and active, you may first want to proof it. Here's how:

Dissolve one package of yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°). Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes. If the mixture foams up, the yeast mixture can be used because the yeast is active. If it does not foam, the yeast should be discarded.
