One of my goals for this year is to expand my baking capabilities. I am one of those when I find something that works I stick with it. My gluten free flours are no exceptions! I have found some really great mixes that have everything included already, even the xanthan gum or guar gum. My theory is why mess with it when they already have the science figured? I mean flour is so expensive and I have hear horror stories of complete recipes being wasted because they did not have enough of flour X or of starch B ect. But it is time to step out of my shell and expand my baking experience!
In steps Shiloh Farms (sponsor). They started back in 1942 with a goal to provide wholesome foods in western New York. Over time they moved to Arkansas and expanded from just baked goods and breads to included grains, honey, dried fruits, and more. Today they still offer foods that are “pure and wholesome, with no artificial ingredients, no preservatives, and only natural flavor”.
Now you can find them in Lancaster PA with USDA Organic Certified flours and more. Now they are introducing a line of Certified Gluten Free products! This line offers you more then 30 gluten free options to go along with your baking needs from nuts to different types of flour.
I received a baking box that included some walnuts, dark chocolate, Coconut Sugar, almond flour and a few other goodies. I could not wait to get started. It has taken me some time but we have been able to use some of it. First I used the Coconut Sugar in a brownie recipe. I was surprised at the taste. It tasted as if I had used regular white sugar! I was afraid it would have a coconut taste to it but surprisingly it did not!
The coconut sugar was not the only thing that surprised me. I never knew my husband had creative capabilities in the kitchen! That man’s idea of cooking is frozen pizza! But the other night he took our dark chocolate chips, melted them then mixed some walnuts in them and put it back in the fridge. It is really good and he loves to dip the chocolate walnut clusters into peanut butter.
I am still trying to figure out how to use the flours but I can not wait to give them a try! Their prices are very comparable to other gluten free flours and products so that is another bonus! You can learn more about Shiloh Farms by visiting their website or use their store locator to find a retailer near you. You can also check them out on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter for some deals and recipes!
