Y is for YEAST

YEAST makes bread rise, and beverages, such as wine and beer, ferment. From the Wikipedia:
The word "yeast" comes from Old English gist, gyst, and from the Indo-European root yes-, meaning "boil", "foam", or "bubble"'. Yeast microbes are probably one of the earliest domesticated organisms.
A friend of mine really likes the word YEASTY, meaning "marked by change; full of vitality."

It occurred to me that YOU, people of ABC Wednesday, are the YEAST of this project. YOU make it rise like a loaf of bread. YOU give it that YUMMINESS like a glass of wine.

Because YOU say YES to participating, YES to visiting others. Some of YOU say YES to writing these pithy intros or designing logos.

YOU make ABC Wednesday YEASTY. Thank YOU.

  3. Funny that our word for yeast is "gist"like the Old English word "gist". I am sure that the pronunciation is different. It's the initial "g" sound in Dutch, which sounds like the Welsh "ll" in Llandrindod.

    1. Odd thing, Berowne. I had the same problem last week. It is there, but there may be something local blocking it.There ARE 18 posts I can see. I'll enter your post for you, if you want, and when it rectifies itself on your end - and there's nothing you need do, except maybe try another machine - it'll be there.

  15. Hi Roger we used to be able to get live yeast from a local bakery but sadly it has closed down, so dried yeast is the order of the day!
    My husband turns out some delicious bread from an old bread maker that we've had for years, I use my food blender to make Pizza dough, which turns out quite well too.
    interesting post,
