Also known as tartaric acid or potassium hydrogen tartarate, cream of tartar has a variety of cooking applications:
Increase Beaten Egg Volume - Cream of Tartar stabilizes egg whites and provides greater volume to beaten egg whites. Ideal for meringues and frostings.
Improves Texture of Candies - Adding Cream of Tartar during the candy-making process helps maintain a smooth candy texture.
We also have a lot of parents and teachers who use Cream of Tartar to make playdough!
Can also be used to clean copper cookware. Simply make into a paste by adding water, and apply.
