It may also be in a larger tin in the baking aisle near the spices, salts and seasoning blends. The baking aisle is pretty much always where it will be, even if it's not sitting in the spice rack.

Great Ways to Use Cream of Tartar

Make a Vegan Whipped Topping

Cream of tartar acts as a stabilizer in this vegan aquafaba whipped cream. If you haven't heard of aquafaba before, it's just the cooking liquid from chickpeas or other beans. If you open a can of chickpeas, the liquid inside is the stuff you want. Add this rich whipped topping to vegan cakes or put it on vegan waffles with fresh fruit.

Use It in Chewy Vegan Cookies

Cream of tartar is also a common ingredient in soft cookies like snickerdoodles. When combined with baking soda, it'll make your cookies nice and puffy with a soft, chewy texture.

Make Vegan Meringues

These vegan meringues are perfect. Just like in the vegan whipped topping, the secret ingredients are aquafaba and cream of tartar. To make them really pretty, add any vegan food coloring, like beet juice for lovely magenta meringues and matcha powder for green.
