Preparation and Usage

If using a bread machine, you can use the yeast direct from the sachet, adding it to your bread pan in the order specified by the manufacturer's instructions, keeping the yeast separate from the salt and sugar. There is no need to pre-mix or add sugar to activate the yeast, just add directly to the recipe.
