Jules Gluten Free flour is the best all purpose flour that I’ve ever used. It’s to be used cup for cup in most any gluten recipe you can think of. Our experiments with it so far include fried chicken fingers, crab cakes, chicken Parmesan, Red Lobster type biscuits, fried onions, quick bread, brunch cake, brownies and pie crust. The only thing I made with the Jules flour blend that I wasn’t crazy about was the pie crust. I’m not sure if I did something wrong there or what happened. Everything else we’ve made produced stellar results. The kind of results that make you say “I can’t believe it’s gluten-free!”
I’ve heard a few people grumble that the Jules flour is too expensive but I can’t quite figure that one out. While I understand someone being hesitant to spend money on a 5 lb. bag of flour that they are not sure they will like, it’s not true that this flour costs much more per cup than many others on the market. It simply doesn’t. Using an average price of a top selling gluten-free flour blend, I did the math and the Jules flour is just a few pennies more per cup than the flour I compared it to. This is based on a 15 cup comparison, making the price difference less than a dollar for 15 cups of flour. That is hardly what most people consider a big price difference. Of course, if one lives in a rural area where the flour prices tend to run higher than in cities, Jules flour actually turns out to be a bargain. If you haven’t tried this flour yet, you might want to consider ordering the $5 sample bag (includes shipping).
For those of you who already know how phenomenal this flour is, Jules is offering her new ebook “Baker’s Dozen” for FREE through February 23rd. Use coupon code “bakers5″ when checking out to get the 100% discount. I already downloaded the book and can’t wait to make brownies and make the pizza crust finally. People routinely speak of breaking down and crying the first time they have the Jules flour pizza crust. Recently, someone who’d just moved was in a panic and sent out an urgent request for the Jules flour pizza crust recipe on the celiac listserv. She had the flour and other ingredients she needed but the actual recipe was packed away in one of the many boxes not yet opened from the move. You might have thought this person was in need of a kidney, the way she was asking for the pizza crust recipe. Her kids were begging for pizza and since making the Jules crust, no other pizza would suffice.
