Use cream of tartar in baking:
  • When combined with baking soda, it becomes a leavening agent (the stuff that makes baked goods puff up in the oven) by producing carbon dioxide gas. If you ever run out of baking powder, you can substitute 1/4 teaspoon baking soda plus 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar for 1 teaspoon baking powder.
  • Add a pinch of cream of tartar to boiling vegetables to help them retain their bright, fresh color.
  • A pinch of cream of tartar also helps stabilize whipped cream to prevent it from deflating.
  • Make colorful, edible play dough!

Or around the house!
