ARTISAN GLUTEN-FREE FLOUR BLEND

Yield: About 12 cups

5 cups (625 grams) brown rice flour

3 cups (350 grams) sorghum flour

2 2/3 cups (360 grams) cornstarch

1 cup (148 grams) potato starch

1/3 cup (57 grams) potato flour

4 teaspoons xanthan gum

Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container in the fridge. The authors recommend measuring by weight rather than by volume for a more accurate and consistent result.

Notes: If you have a sensitivity to a specific ingredient, use the following substitutions. For corn, replace the cornstarch with 1 3/4 cups arrowroot flour. For potatoes, omit the potato starch and potato flour and replace with 1 1/3 cups tapioca starch. For sorghum, omit the sorghum flour and replace with an additional 3 cups of brown rice flour for a total of 8 cups of brown rice flour.

The ingredients can frequently be found in the specialty-flour or health-foods aisle of the supermarket or in health food stores.
