Yeast. I have packets in the cabinet. How do I know it's active.

Just decided to make Parker House Rolls. @katellington on Twitter

It's a good idea to check the expiration date first.

Put 1/2 teaspoon of it in a bowl and cover with 2 tablespoons room temperature water. If the yeast dissolves and becomes foamy/fluffy, it's active.

Need to add sugar, too.
