Cream of Tartar - DISCONTINUED

Cream of Tartar - DISCONTINUED

Cream of tartar is the common name for potassium hydrogen tartrate, an acid salt that has a number of uses in cooking.

Add cream of tartar to beaten egg whites to stabilize and give more volume. For 1 to 2 whites, add: 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar. For creamier frostings, candy fillings and syrups and to prevent premature hardening add 1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar per 1-1/2 cup of sugar. It inhibits the formation of crystals. A pinch of cream of tartar added to vegetables when boiling also helps reduce discoloration.

Cream of tartar is used commercially in some soft drinks, candies, bakery products, gelatin desserts, and photography products. It is the acidic ingredient in some brands of baking powder. Since it is slightly acidic, it can be used to clean brass and copper cookware.

Cream of tartar is obtained when tartaric acid is half neutralized with potassium hydroxide, transforming it into a salt. Grapes are the only significant natural source of tartaric acid and Silver Cloud's Cream of Tartar is obtained from sediment produced in the process of making wine.

Vanilla bean and extract prices have increased significantly this year. This is due to a smaller than expected crop in Madagascar last year. This was aggravated by early picking and the vacuum packing of uncured beans. While short term the news is not good, the 2016 flowering was excellent and we anticipate a good harvest. This may lead to some price softening, but with the strong demand for vanilla we have seen it is hard to say how much relief we will see. We will know more later this year as new crop, cured beans become available. Best case we do not anticipate any significant reduction in price before the end of the 1st quarter of 2017.
