Please help before I go too far!  I am wanting to make up some french bread today.  I made a mistake in the directions.


They said mix yeast with sugar and warm (110) water, which I did.  But then I also added the salt from the recipe which was not supposed to go in until I add the flour.  Before I waste 5 cups of flour, I need to know.....Did I just Kill my Yeast with the salt?  Or should I proceed?  The liquid mixture is all bubbly and smells of yest.


Any help?

You haven't killed anything.  Add the flour and continue as directed.  Bread is pretty durable.  I have screwed up recipes many times, and in general the bread turns out fine.
