Has anyone tried Einkorn flour lately? I tried just the other night for the first time – buttermilk biscuits –
I had actually purchased this bag way back in December – I haven’t been able to bring myself to use it because this little 2 lb bag was about $9.00! From Amazon – but since then I’ve found other resources –
I started researching Einkorn when I went gluten free way back in November. It’s the “original ancient grain”, completely unmodified by humans in any way. At least that’s my understanding –
Since going completely gluten free in November, I’ve stuck with going about 90% gluten free for the past 4 months. I’m not allergic nor do I have celiac but I do find I’m less tired than I am when I eat a lot of wheat. I can also tighten my belt one more notch:) But I think that’s because going gluten free also means cutting out all of the junk food that goes along with it:)
I made buttermilk biscuits to go along with my sausage, egg casserole for dinner. The flour is lovely and light. Not a total bleached white like “normal” flour and it handles just like a regular wheat flour. If a bit more finely ground –
The family couldn’t taste a difference and the only difference I could SEE was that the biscuits weren’t bleach white –
I thought the biscuits were delicious and had a wonderful flavor to them. Not quite “white flour” flavor 🙂 It’s hard to describe.
LOL! I need to try another recipe now that I’ve worked up the courage to open that little bag of flour… What to make next?
This recipe looks delicious!
