Make Your Own Self-Rising Flour

flour and baking ingredients on table

If your recipe calls for self-rising flour but you don’t have any in the pantry, you can easily make your own: mix 1 cup all-purpose flour with 1½ teaspoons baking powder and ¼ teaspoon salt. Use a wire whisk to combine. Once combined, use this mixture as 1 cup of self-rising flour.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
