There isn't a grocery store within fifteen miles of my house that sells Fleischmann's Rapid Rise yeast. So here's my question - if one has the choice between Rapid Rise and Active (a.k.a. - Take All Day to Rise), is it not obvious which to choose? Why even bother making Active yeast? Give the people what they want - fast dough!
All I know is that I have three batches of soft pretzels to make tonight and neither Kroger nor Marsh have Fleischmann's Rapid Rise. So I bought several packets of....Kroger brand rapid rise. I don't trust it, but my hands are tied.
We'll see if it turns out better than the last time I couldn't use Fleischmann's Rapid Rise.
