Request for Floyd to make a new forum topic

Floyd,


I'd like to see a place where we can group spcedific topics of health loaves/ non traditional loaves


weight watchers etc


gluten free


wheat free


 


or if you have a better way to find /group them that would be good as well


I made 12 loaves of bread for this thanksgiving (including home made stuffing) and I just found out today that I'm allergic to wheat :) so I guess I have to learn more about rye bread YUM!

If you would like to eat rye bread because you are allergiec to gluten, try the 4 day rye sourdough recipe. You need sourdough in order to bake rye bread because it has more fiber than wheat. I bake only with sourdough because it is better for the digestive system. I baked the 4 day rye bread the other day, it was delicious. I described it in another post. forgot where.


forgot to mention that I baked the bread without commercial yeast.


Do you have experience with sourdough?

I'd be happy to set up a forum for "special baking needs" discussions.  It'd be nice if it had a broad enough title that it could encompass more than just a single dietary speciality since we have folks here who bake gluten-free, others who are lactose intolerant, others diabetic, and so on. I don't want to split hairs too much and end up with 25 seperate forums for each of those categories, each one containing only a handful of posts.


How about... "Baking for Restricted Diets"? Or just "Baking with Restrictions"?  That'd be broad enough to even encompass things like Weight Watchers or religious restrictions to diets.

I liked your first suggestion, and I think it describes a nice broad category that does just what you are looking for.  Sufficiently broad, yet clearly not for every post on the forum.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but I have searched for the 4 Day Rye with no success.  Would love to try it. Any help in finding would be very much appreciated.

Hi Carol,


I am in the process of creating an E-Book with  step-by-step instructions plus picture to every step.


It's not that easy to bake a 60% rye bread without commercial yeast.


I myself have trouble with the digestive system and this recipe is ideal for me. It is light, lots of holes, easy to digest and tastes great. I made it with Bauernbrot / Farmers Bread spices, like caraway, fennel, cardamom. Another version is just with salt and Sunflower Seeds and Flax Seeds. I love it.


I will update my website soon http://wheatandsourdough.com

Thanks so much Linda, looking forward to the E-Book.  I visit regularly, but will have to keep a really close watch on your blog. 


Floyd, you are amazing, this forum is the greatest place, filled with the greatest people!  I've probably said this before........and will probably say it again.

If you will go to the forum index, you'll see a new one titled "Special Needs Baking."


I mention this as I'm not sure if those interested are aware it now exists - merely because there's not a single posting yet.

I created the first post to try to get it going,  I requested brick ovens earlier, now its a healthy forum topic.
