For some time now I have been Gluten and Wheat free, its not easy but lots of things have improved for me by living this way.
I used to be so, so tired and often irritable and depressed for no reason. 18 months ago I went to the Doctor and had a variety of test, heart, blood etc and nothing was found to be amiss.
I have long suspected that I might be sensitive to Gluten and Wheat but Doctors tend to dismiss it when you mention it to them and make you feel as though you are a crank.
Anyway, I won't bore you with any more but thought you'd like to see how I made my mince pies this year, wheat and gluten free.
180 Grams bread flour, 20 Grams Gram Flour
100 Grams fat, Mincemeat.
Mix together with about 4 Tablespoons cold water
You will need to roll between cling film as its a bit softer than usual pastry.
Always make sure you have the most intelligent of your cats to help with instructions.
As the pastry is soft I just put mounds of mincemeat on the bottom and folded the top layer over.
cut into 6 and place on baking tray
Cook gas not 7 for about 15 minutes
They won't go as brown as usual pastry but taste great and are nice and crispy .
