I bought something awhile back, and in a cleaning frenzy, I dumped it into a mason jar without labeling it. :blink:

What was I thinking?

I know it must be gelatin or xanthan or guar---something like that.

Any idea how to tell what it is?

So, so foolish....

It reminds me of the time I did the same thing with salt and wound up mistaking it for sugar. When I took my brownies out of the the oven I thought, "Wow! These are really sparkly!" :lol:

I'm not sure, but if you gave it to Rice Guy, the way he is always experimenting, I bet he could have it figured out by tomorrow morning :lol:

If you have any of the above already labeled, you could try comparing them side by side or tasting them to see what matched.

I do this sometimes. I buy from a reliable bulk bin store and come home with a plastic bag of white powder, which I put in the pantry until the appropriate container becomes empty. But by that time, which is the appropriate container?? :lol: So I taste what's in the bag and then try white rice, or tapioca, or whatever.....Now I have learned and write in black marking pen on the bag before popping it in the pantry for another day :rolleyes:
