GLUTEN FREE FLOUR BLEND

“A new life is but a new mind.”

This is a recipe from the America’s Test Kitchen cookbook.  It’s the cookbook that includes everything from seasons 2001 to 2017.  Buy it!  It is one of the best cookbooks in the world!  Follow the recipes and you will become known as a god/goddess of the culinary world.  You will have a myriad of friends who will love you for your food.  It’s a start.

INGREDIENTS:

24 ounces (4 1/2 cups plus 1/3 cup) white rice flour

7 1/2 ounces (1 2/3 cups brown rice flour

7 ounces (1 1/3 cup) potato starch, NOT potato flour

3 ounces (3/4 cup) tapioca starch, or tapioca flour.  That would be OK

3/4 ounce (1/4 cup) nonfat dry milk powder

DISTRUCTIONS:

Whisk all the ingredients together in a large bowl.  Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate.  This will stay fresh and usable for up to 3 months.

It is highly recommended that you weigh the ingredients rather than measure the ingredients.  If you do not have a little scale and stepping on and off your bathroom scale with bowls of powder doesn’t seem like fun, spoon the ingredients gently into measuring cups.  Do not tap or pack down the ingredients.

At this point I could be generous and actually give you the recipe for the gluten free pizza crust that is also in the America’s Test Kitchen cookbook.

But that’s not going to happen because I’m going on vacation.  (Has she been off her med’s again?)  You see, my goal is to have a blog post everyday for a year, and while it’s possible to schedule posts ahead of time, I probably won’t be writing while I’m gone.  That means I simply have to get as many posts ahead as I possibly can right now.  The time between now and the pizza crust recipe will be, I assure you, a blessing.  It will give you time to get the other ingredients that you’ll need.

Those other ingredients include almond flour and powdered psyllium husks.  You’ll also need yeast, but you won’t have to knead yeast.  Isn’t that a clever play on words?  (Should somebody call her family?) Tomorrow you’ll have the pizza crust recipe, which means you’ll be able to make pizza.  It will be worth the wait!
