You're welcome!
I forgot: it's best if you let it soak in water before you use it in your recipes. 20g of gelatine needs ca. 200 ml of water. I use a small Ikea bowl that is around 200 ml. For 10g of gelatine I use about half the bowl of water. I shouldn't get firm, but rather "creamy".
Good luck with all your experiments!
(I have experimented with normal recipes using other grains instead and a thickener. It works better than you might think! So, don't throw away your cake recipes!!! :-) )

I sure understand. I too have to drive 100 miles. I buy a lot on Amazon and do the subscribe and save mostly. When I go to see my dd in the city I always make a trip to get GF products.

I live in a remote area. I drive across 3 counties to get to an area with any commercial / industrial place for a job. I understand people don't understand.

I truly hadn't looked at amazon as I have been focusing on natural products type sites (and I went to the one Whole Foods store which is over 100 mile trip from where I live) -- it wasn't cheap there, either.

Thanks for recommending Amazon.

What you paid for a lb, is what I can pay for 4 oz.

Are you willing to share where you got yours?

I am curious what you are paying for xanthan gum. I paid $16. for a lb 3 years ago and still have about 1/2 of a bag. I do a lot of baking. To me that isn't too expensive. I have only purchased it twice in 11 years. Hope you find a good solution for you.

Thanks...I've already been doing chia or flax seeds and it's not optimal. Then again, once I experiment with gelatin, it may prove my chia/ flax WAS optimal! ;p

I'm curious about the gelatin, since it's the thing I've not done yet.

Check out what Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef are doing. She has had to cut out gums (bad for her digestion) and has used flax/chia/hemp seeds ground up as a replacement, but I'm not sure what her replacement ratios are.

Should I replace 1:1?

XG is *too* expensive! I read several places to try unflavored gelatin so I got some but I'm not sure about how much to use.

TIA!
