Cream of Tartar
Often referred to as potassium bitartrate, this powder is commonly used in baking and cooking.
- Ideal for use in dessert recipes such as pavlova, the cream of tartar helps to stabilise whipped egg whites and cream.
- Add to eggs when making lighter cake mixtures to help keep the eggs fluffy and well risen.
- Often used when making candy or caramels, this helps to prevent the sugar from crystallising.
- Make your own baking powder by combining 1/2tsp cream of tartar with 1/4tsp bicarbonate of soda.
