Having to 'start' over again, and other lessons learned.
I have a daughter with celiac and another with multiple food allergies, including most glutens. My granddaughter is also hypersensitive to gluten. I miss baking beautiful loaves!! I had a starter made from Zinfandel grapes when we lived in CA. It was lovely.
Celiac here! The celiac disease and all the food additives have brought me to the point that I literally can only eat animal products (without additives beyond basics like salt and cultures) and produce from my own back yard (or trusted organic sources). Everything I eat has to be from scratch, all grains mess with me now.
I would love to start making sourdough for my family, but have to keep my house gluten free for my safety with airborne flour and cross contamination. I so wish I had tried making sourdough in the past because I don't want to try gluten free sourdough, which is very difficult, without any experience at all.
People, pay attention to labels, because one day you're young and don't realize all the little messages your body is telling you about all the crap you're putting into it and then BAM you find yourself debilitatingly sick and always finding another condition or reaction and can basically only eat carnivore without feeling like death.
Good to know. My mom has a habit from her youth as an immigrant of purchasing the cheapest food available, which of course means the most adulterated. The bread is an abomination. I have been thinking about sourdough. Thanks for the info. Also, where do you get your culture?
I did know this about King Arthur! Will definitely switch. I hate how just when you think you can trust a company and stop reading their labels they go and do something like this.
Thanks for the heads up!
I used KAF and didn’t know about this--thanks for pointing it out
I struggled with my sourdough starter, eventually I bought some off Amazon, it's still going strong.
Really great sleuthing to find the trigger!
You can buy raw milk and the New Melle food co-op. I haven't been yet, but I learned about it at the expo.
I really don't want to move because I'm so established, thankfully I have enough land I could pull off dairy goats and stay in ordinance here in Overland since I have 2 acres. The world is not quite crazy enough for Andy to jump in on it with me but I've almost got him there. Plus my neighbors have goats, a friend half a mile away has goats, both of them have an unfixed male, so I have breeding handled!
