    How to Make Reduced Baking Soda



    I made this reduced baking soda for my kutsinta recipe, because kutsinta needs a lye water which is very difficult to find in my place so I looked for a solution by searching in the internet and reading different sources like forums and websites. This is how to make a reduced baking soda, a substitute for lye water.

    I pre-heated the oven for 5 minutes then baked 1/2 cup of baking soda at 150 degrees celcius for 80 minutes,  I let it cool and put in an air tight container, now I am ready to make kutsinta. How about you?

    Any recipe that calls for lye water, this is a substitute for it.

    1. Very interesting! Mely, I salute & greatly thank your resourcefulness. And, because you (and I) love good food, we'll mind everything for our tummy pleasures! ;) Same here, I don't proceed with a Kuchinta recipe requiring for Lye Water that I can't easily access in my place.

    13. The instructions says to bake the Baking Soda for 80 minutes... does that mean 1.5 hours. It might burn or becomes so dark and it will be bitter! Please reply. Thanks.
