  3. Wow! I have some broccoli in the fridge and here's the idea of what I can do about it in a healthy way. :)

    About your question, I use a Chinese brand yeast which reads 'Instant Dry Yeast'. Although either the yeast is 'Active Dry Yeast' or 'Instant Yeast', but I don't know mine lies in which category. ;)
