Cream of tartar has many uses - these include:
  1. Make baking powder by mixing 2 parts cream of tartar with one part of baking soda and one part of cornstarch.
  2. Add around half a teaspoonful to the beaten egg whites when making meringues. This helps improve the volume and stability of the meringue.
  3. Add a little cream of tartar to whipped cream to help stabilise it when piping etc.
  4. Add cream of tartar to beaten egg whites in recipes that require stiff peaks.
  5. When making sweets, add a pinch of cream of tartar to sugar syrups to prevent them from crystallizing.
  6. Add a pinch of cream of tartar when boiling vegetables to help them keep their colour.
