Hello from Texas
My name is Jack and I live in Austin, Texas. I've been baking bread off and on for many years. Traditionally I make a rosemary/olive oil bread from a recipe that got out of Food and Wine magazine over 20 years ago. I usually bake it around the holidays and give away a dozen or so loaves.
Longer ago than that, a friend of mine with roots in Germany gave me a sourdough starter that she got from her mom who lived in Germany and she got it from her mom and etc, etc. As best my friend knew, the starter was somewhere around 150 years old. It had the most wonderfully sweet/sour aroma. When I divorced, my ex cleaned out the fridge along with the bank accounts and threw the starter in the trash. Money is replaceable. The starter was not.
My new wife and I have only been married for 22 years but I think this one's going to last. We just discovered that she is gluten intolerant. We don't think she has celiacs but she definitely can't handle gluten in her diet. I've been on Mike's Sourdough board for a few months looking for gluten free recipes and it seems that it's pretty hard for the starter to work without wheat flour.
I can use any help, especially if it's the result of experience with sourdough and gluten free.
If anyone has a starter that sounds like what I lost, I'd be glad to pay for a start of it and to pay the postage.
I'm glad to be here and look forward to sharing what I have with what you have.
