Cream of Tartar is a unique by-product of the wine making process. It is an acidic sediment left behind in the barrels after the grape juice has fermented.
Cream of Tartar is an essential ingredient in baking. It stabilizes and adds volume to frosting and whipped cream, and stabilizes egg whites for meringues and angel food cake. Used with sugar syrups it prevents sugar crystals from forming. Paired with baking soda it makes baking powder, used in baking to create volume in cakes and muffins. Baking powder is approximately a 2:1:1 ratio of cream of tartar, baking soda, and cornstarch. Buy baking essentials often so you’re never without your favorite trusted ingredients.
Other names for Cream of Tartar include Potassium Bitartrate and Potassium Hydrogen Tartrate. It has an indefinite shelf life if kept away from air, moisture, and heat.
