List of Ingredients

Baking soda


Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) is a leavening agent.  It is used to produce a gas that makes baked goods raise.  Combined with an acid like vinegar or lemon juice, baking soda will produce CO2 bubbles.  

Recipes using  baking soda always uses an acid (liquids like vinegar, milk, molasses, honey; or dry like cream of tartar.)

Baking soda releases this gas all at once so you do not want to let a batter sit around too long or beat it too much.  If you do, the leavening action will be lost and your baked goods will fail to raise.

Baking soda has other uses as well.  Here a just a few of the more unusual uses:

1.  To put out grease fires, sprinkle by handfuls.
2.  Clean vegetables and fruit by sprinkling a little baking soda in the water, soak and  then rinse.
3.  Clean combs and brushes with baking soda solution.
4.  Use baking soda instead of cleansing powder to wash and freshen your counter tops.
5.  Sprinkle baking soda on barbeque grills and let soak; then rinse off.
6.  For bug bites, mix baking soda and vinegar to a paste and coat.
7.  Add a teaspoon to water in which beans are soaking  to make them more digestible.
8.  For sunburn or bee stings, baking soda and water pastes eases pain.
9. Sprinkle baking soda in your tennis shoes, socks, boots or slippers will help eliminate odor.
10.  2 Tablespoons in baby's bath will help relieve diaper rash irritation.
