Gluten Free Sourdough


JUDITH has asked:


GLUTEN FREE SOURDOUGH? I'm interested in starting sourdough. But I need to be gluten free due to Celiac Disease. Is there anyone that has experience with gluten free flours? Or can you just substitute GF flours for wheat flours?

I am not a fan of sourdough, but am a GF baker and have made other breads with GF flours.  It is not a 1:1 substitution when it comes to flours and varies greatly by recipe, rise, yeast, everything!  It can be daunting, but don't be worried!  Just start practicing with some basic flours: rice flour, brown rice flour, potato starch, and tapioca are good starting points.  Sorghum and chickpea are good next steps.  Play around with recipes and flours and I promise you'll eventually find one you like!
