works with rice, I believe it can work with all
Dilute 2 Tablespoons of commercial yeast in 2 cups of warm water. Put 2 cups of brown rice flour best into your crock and pour in your warm water mix. Add 2 Tablespoons of sugar (white, brown, honey, molasses should all work) and mix well. Let your covered crock sit in a warm place for 24 hours. You can start using it the next day, if you'd like, or you can repeat the feeding process by adding some more sugar and letting it sit another day or so before using it.

Thanks Lola.  My husband likes bread and was talking about sour dough the other day.  We only have BTD compliant bread, that he makes, in the house.  Unless of course we have house guests.

My friend Bob turned me on to a great way of making bread that involves no kneading and yields absolutely wonderful results.

Sami's has never been gluten free and does contain baking powder (aka corn starch).  The label says:  Processed in a non-Gluten free facility.  May contain traces of Gluten, Wheat, or Yeast.

We've always been suspicious of Sami's Bakery bread but family members do not have any major reactions to this bread.

It is easy to make waffles, cookies, muffins, fried bread, etc without gluten or gums...

I was just researching baking bread and being such the cook I am(not the best) I thought possible finding a bread mix and baking that. Well I came across Pamela's bread mix which has sorghum flour. I was trying to find out what sorghum flour was because I have never had any that I know of. Never could find a good definition of this.

Anyway I have had some of Pamela's cookies that were wf/gf and they were very good. Not sure about the xanthan gum. I'm sure this is not good.

Vicki, I know it doesn't claim to be gluten-free, but for many people who aren't extremely gluten-intolerant, they can eat foods that have safe ingredient lists even if they're made in a contaminated place.

Glutinous rice does not have gluten in it.  Glutinous rice flour (sweet, mochiko) Works well as a thickener in sauces and soups. Sauces thickened with sweet rice flour will not separate when frozen and thawed.

In post #39, PT quotes another site where someone thought that Sami's was sold as gluten-free.  It has never been sold as gluten free.  I just wanted to clear up that misconception.

Ribbit...Can you make a sour dough starter from a gluten free flour?  Like quinoa?



I did a search on quinoa & sourdough and a bunch of results came up, so apparently you can do it.

Also Peppermint..

here is how to make Kale or Swiss Chard Chips.

Wash and shake out 2 bunches of greens.  Trim from stem and break down into a large chip size or smaller (some will just be smaller on their own).

Put into a large bowl and pour 1 tbl Olive Oil over greens and if desired sprinkle with Redmond Salt.

Mix gently and throughly with hands.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees (NO HOTTER)

Spray a big cookie sheet with Olive Oil Spray and lay each piece of greens on the sheet in a one layer preferably not overlapping.  They can be close together but don't overlap.

Place in oven and set timer for 12 minutes.  At 12 minutes check them.  some may still be soft... if so, bake for another minute or so and keep checking as this is the cruical point of making sure they don't burn but are crisp.

This step is the most important and SO WORTH IT, as if you get them just right, they are so good.

If you burn them a little no biggie but just before that point is when they are the most delicious.

Carefully remove with a spacula and place on a plate or in a bowl.  

These are also good cold if you make too many, you can store them in fridge.  They aren't as crisp but still out of this world.  They end up becoming a little more chewy.

I hope you give these another shot.  They take away my desire for commericial chips.

Best Post Ever ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I see where I was going wrong:

1.  Did not coat the leaves with oil beforehand.

2.  Had the oven too hot (350 degrees).

3.  Last but not least, cooked waaaaaay too long.

I need a cookie sheet!  This O non doesn't even have one.  But for this, I'll get one.  I shall report back to base camp upon making and ingesting these (don't hold your breath, as it usually takes me a good year or so to work up to doing anything).  THANKS for the awesome recipe!  You should add that to the recipe database.

A healthy chip!
Is like a mel-o-dy!

(Don't mind me, I'm turning everything into a musical today for some reason...)

edited to add:  I just added your recipe to my Google docs, recipe folder.  I can tell I am going to love it before even making it.  THANKS again!

Update:  HFS owner called Sami's.  The person didn't speak English very well and/or was not very forthcoming re:  why did they sell their soul to the devil?

As for myself, I plan to BOYCOTT SAMI'S, even though some of the products are still apparently corn-free.  I don't give my $$$ to sell-outs!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I'm not even sure they ever had any intregity to sell out, but either way, I prefer to vote with my dollars for companies that really choose to go the whole, high-quality-ingredient route.

Today I brown-bagged lunch and it was a mixture of organic brown basmati rice, cut up organic buffalo hotdog, fresh grape tomato, a tiny bit of organic mayo, key lime juice, dark-toasted sesame oil, curry powder and sea salt.  DIVINE!  Who needs a stinkin' sandwich?

Not I, said the little G2 hen!

edited to add!!!  OMG, and last night I had this AMAZING salad of romaine hearts, raddichio, tons of grape tomatoes, organic turkey breast, tons of fresh basil leaves, and a dressing of mayo, olive oil, key lime juice, adobo seasoning and sea salt.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  The classic winning marraige of basil and tomato, and then the turkey and that yummy dressing and the romaine!!!  CHI ALERT!

I turned and said to my then-twelve-year-old, today-thirteen-year-old dog, "I love this way of eating!"

Where did you get the organic mayo?  I haven't been able to find one compliant with either the GTD or the BTD?  What brand is it?  Perhaps I can order it online.  And where did you get the organic buffalo hotdog?  Yum!

Both were purchased at the health food store.  The mayo is Spectrum Organic.  It does contain a few avoids, but it's the purest I've found and contains no GMO ingredients.  The buffalo dogs are great and it is the first time I bought them, so I can't remember the brand, but I will check for you tonight when I'm at the HFS again.

wow.. buffalo dogs!  fantastic!  any avoids in those?

Also Sue uses the mayo brand "Follow Your Heart -  Grapeseed Oil Vegenaise." Which they usually keep over with the cold stuff in Whole Foods.  It's the closest we have found to being compliant for O's.  

Here are the ingredients:

Grapeseed Oil, Filtered Water, Brown Rice Syrup, Apple Cider Vinegar, Soy Protein, Sea Salt, Mustard Flour and Lemon Juice Concentrate.

So on the BTD, this would be perfect for O's.  But now, for Hunters... NOT.

Okay, here is the 411 on the buffalo dogs.  They are very far towards the "totally!" end of the Awesomeness Spectrum, except for one avoid, which I'm sure you will spot right away, namely "turbinado sugar".  Other than that, they are fab:  no nitrites, no wheat, no corn sweeteners, no hormones, antibiotics, etc.  Check it out (warning:  this is a .pdf file and may take forever to open, depending on your system):
