Wild rice flour
Summers bounty has overwhelmed me this year! I am not ungrateful, sharing like crazy! I just feel overwhelmed! So I purged tha larder and found a good deal of wild rice I scored as swag at my last food show ( my son is a busy executive chef and I am his purchasing dept for his side catering business... So I do get freebies and scores ..the wild rice was to try in one of his cold salad inventions that is wonderful, but to weird to be a big seller ...hense a lovely glut of free wild rice!)
In an effort to make room I am trying to use up and give away!
One of my docs is " gluten free" ( in my career I could go on and on about food related health fads that myself and young doctors have and continue to buy into.. but I won't because really if it works and is healthy I don't bitch, gluten free works and is healthy so I shut up about my opinions and accommodate with a smile)
I am a pure grain boring baker ( as mentioned I rarely mix more than two grains, usually just 1 whole grain, rye, wheat, spelt alone or with white Canadian durum ..or I make white only. I have had horrid results and do not usually like rice flour or gluten free yeast breads...so I generally make her crackers! I make terrific variety of GF crackers!
Sorry for the ramble
Back to wild rice! Can you make a nice loaf of wild rice flour bread? Gluten free? Is it worth it to grind the seeds up and make a loaf? Or should I just continue stuffing birds and making salad with it?
I did a search and found plenty of rice flour breads, wild rice cooked into bread whole, but no recipes for grinding and using wild rice flour? Am I missing something? I think wild rice has a lovely flavor and have not even checked to see if it truly is gluten free, just assumed since it is more a seed than a grain it was?
Either way I would like to mill it and try if it is feasible?
Any ideas? Could it be a cookie even? Muffin Something different than the crackers as a treat for this darling girl? Yeast bread is best, I know she misses French toast and like me NOT impressed with over the counter GF loaves.
Any proven ideas for wild rice flour ?
Omg what I am finding in the pantry and freezer could become a true cooking baking game! Nothing makes sense because I realize I don't make sense!
Thanks in advance not just for akin it through this post but for any help offered!
