Forgive Me - Newbie

Recommended Posts

Hi all, newbie questions.

I noticed Heinz catsup is gluten-free - thank you!

Here are my ??

1. Substitute for white vinegar

2. Substitute for flour to thicken sauces (roux)

3. gluten-free hamburgers? Recipe?

4. gluten-free sausage? This is one of the only things my 2 1/2 yr old likes

5. Is cream (1/2 n 1/2, whipping cream, etc) gluten-free? Or is there a brand that is?

I very much appreciate the help. I know I can call the 800 numbers tomorrow, but am trying to plan for the week coming up and no one's open today.

Thank you!

apple cider vinegar

corn starch works great to thicken sauces

hamburger meat is gluten-free, just make your patties... I like Kinnikinick gluten-free hamburger buns

applegate farms makes gluten-free sausages, but I'm not so crazy about them. I'm sure there are some other brands of sausage that are gluten-free, I just don't know what they are.

as far as I know, all cream is gluten-free, like 1/2 & 1/2 ... but I could be wrong. I use Horizon Organics creams and other dairy products.

Here's what I've found-

1. Heinz - distilled white vinegar and apple cider(not apple flavored)

2. Cornstarch is a GREAT thickener(I use it alot) you can also use a Gluten Free all purpose flour

3. like nini said hamburger is gluten free.

As was said in the previous posts cornstarch is a great thickener

As for whipped cream..look at Kraft they do not hide anything.

For thickening I like cornstarch for some things, but not for others. It's great for puddings, or for clear broth-based gravies.

For a roux however (butter or fat-based gravy) I prefer a mix; 2/3 Asian rice flour and 1/3 bean flour (I use Great Northern Bean flour, but garfava or whatever will work too). This will not only result in a more flour-like roux (it bonds well with the fats and the end product is not as gelatinous as corn starch) but it is also more nutritious (rice and beans in combination contain all the amino acids required for your body to make protein).

I quite frequently use potato flour for a thickener. Especially for gravies. It has the same flavour as the potatoes and I think a better texture. I also use it to thicken soup :P

All white vinegar is gluten-free. Avoid malt vinegar.

Cream is gluten-free.

Most sausages are in fact gluten-free. If you haven't already seen your favorite listed here, call the company and ask.

I agree about the flour mixture instead of cornstarch for a roux.

I've used both Potato Starch and Tapioca Flour successfully to make a roux. I use them 1:1 as you would regular flour.

Thank you so much to everyone. I must admit, the thought of changing our diets FOREVER terrified me a week ago. Each of you has been so open, honest, and kind that I'm beginning to have hope, and realize that I can do this.

Thank you for supporting me, I really needed it.

PS I'm amazed at how rotten the withdrawal was (pounding headaches) but how good my tummy feels!
