Strawberry Jam

  • 5 cups crushed strawberries (I put mine through the food processor)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 4 T. tapioca starch
  •  3 1/2 cups granulated fructose
  • 8 half pint glass jars with lids and bands
1.) PREPARE all your canning supplies and water.
2.) COMBINE strawberries and lemon juice in a large pot. Bring mixture to a rolling boil, over high heat, stirring constantly
3.) Dissolve the Tapioca starch in the cold water and slowly add to the strawberry mixture.
4.) ADD sugar, stirring constantly until it is all dissolved. Return mixture to a full rolling boil. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim foam if necessary.
4.) LADLE hot jam into hot jars leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Wipe rim. Center lid on jar. Apply band until fit is fingertip tight.
5.) PROCESS in a boiling water canner for 10 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Remove jars and cool. Check lids for seal after 24 hours. Lid should not flex up and down when center is pressed.

Bread/ Pizza Crust Recipe

·       2 Tb active dry yeast
·       2 Tb xanthan gum
·       2 tsp salt
·        1 2/3 cup tapioca starch
·       1/2 cup millet flour
·       1/2 c sorghum flour
·       2 cups brown rice flour
·       2  cups white rice flour
·       6 eggs
·       2 Tb apple cider vinegar
·       1/2 cup oil (olive, grapeseed)
·       1/2 cup agave or honey
·       3 cups room temperature rice milk
  1. Add all dry ingredients into a bowl and blend
  2. Pour all wet ingredients into a separate bowl and blend
  3. Slowly all the wet ingredients to the dry stirring constantly
The batter will be drop dough consistency.  (A.K.A: kind of sticky and you'll think you added too much liquid :)
I just dip a spatula in water and spread it to make it smooth (you will have to re-dip quite frequently).
For pizza: bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 mins then add toppings and bake for 8-10 more
For a loaf of bread: Let rise for about 20 mins and bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 mins 
*One batch of this will make one loaf of bread, and a whole cookie sheet of pizza crust*
