Sifting Flour

variaas | Apr 25, 2007 09:33 AM

So I need help improving my workflow when sifting flour. There are two scenarios I usualy face:

* 1 cup flour, sifted - For this I would put 1 cup of flour into the sifter, and sift on to parchment paper and then transfer.

* 1 cup of sifted flour - This is where I face issues. I don't have much space in the kitchen, so I repeat my process from above and then pour the sifted flour back into a measuring cup until I hit 1 cup. Afterwards I have to pour the extra flour back into the bag. This process is much more cumbersome and I was hoping that someone out there has a better suggestion.

Should I invest in a big air tight bowl to hold flour and sift over that bowl? Should I invest in a scale and forego any sort of sifting? If so, what's a good scale? How do you guys work with flour?
