One such example is of yeast that is under shortage because of these ridiculous hoarding habits of people. But lucky for others that yeast is not hard to make at home and biologists are offering their help to teach people how to make it.

We are going through exceptional times and one can say that this pandemic has managed to bring out a side in us that we never knew existed.

#3 Take fresh fruit unless you have grown the fruit yourself and you trust it

The ingredients needed for yeast making are dried fruit, water, and flour. Fresh fruit can do the job too but it is better if it is not washed before the process which given the circumstances surrounding the viral disease is not really a smart decision or if taken than it must be at one's own risk.

#11 Summing up the whole process with a funny note from the geneticist

Okay so all the folks who are interested in making yeast, this recipe is for you.

Toss your fruit in a jar and then add 2-3 tablespoon of water in it. Continue mixing until you see it getting cloudy. Then all you have to do is add an equal amount of flour in it to make a loose, soggy dough. Old flour will work fine but if it is white flour than it is better.

Remember you have to keep the mix lukewarm and around 12 hours later you will see bubbles that will be present because of the yeast in the mix.

Now, 24-48 hours later, your dough should loosen up. And take a small piece of this mix and add it to 30–40 milliliters of water. Add flour to it and repeat the procedure. This time, the bubbles should appear faster.
