gluten-free boys going goo free
Hi Rachel, Thank you for sharing all your experiences and wisdom with us in your book - I read it last night and this morning was at my local New World to buy organic stoneground wheat flour and dripping and full cream unhomogenised milk! I have sorted through my grocery cupboard, which is looking really bare at the moment, and taken out all the soy milk cartons! Is corn or fructose syrup goo? Please can you share your soda bread recipe mentioned in your book as I am unable to have yeast as am fighting chronic candida. Thank you again, will let you now how we get on as we continue – what a celebration there will be in our family when our boys are happy, growing well and thriving! Kind regards, Bronwyn
Hi Bronwyn, Pleased you liked my book and you have made some changes :) Recipe as below re soda bread. Most people find however that the recipes made with the fresh compressed yeast doesn`t seem to be a problem, so you maybe able to try sometime soon. Recipe book is coming soonish........ Yes corn and fructose syrup is goo, as well as agave syrup which is commonly used in organics as a sugar substitute. Keep it simple, as the "goo" list does grow. If Grandma didn`t have it available in her pantry 70 yrs ago, best to avoid it. All the best and hope in a few weeks time you will start noticing a difference. Cheers Rachel EASY BROWN BREAD/SODA BREAD ingredients 3 Cups Wheat Flour (organic stoneground) 1 Cup White Flour ( organic stoneground) 2 Ounces Butter 14 Ounces Buttermilk (or whole non-homogenised or raw milk) 1 tsp salt 1 1/2 tsp bicarb soda method Preheat the oven to 425 F.degrees. Lightly grease and flour a cake pan. In a large bowl sieve and combine all the dry ingredients. Rub in the butter until the flour is completely crumbly. Add the buttermilk to form a sticky dough. Place on a floured surface and lightly knead. Shape into a round flat shape in a round cake pan and cut across in the top of the dough. Cover the pan with another pan and bake for 30 mins. Remove cover and bake for an additional 15 mins. The bottom of the bread will have a hollow sound when tapped to show it is done. Cover the bread in a tea towel and lightly sprinkle water on the cloth to keep the bread moist. Let cool and you are ready to have a buttered slice! YUM!
