Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour
Adapted from Gluten-Free Girl & the Chef; makes 1000 g of ap flour

i'm definitely NOT a gluten-free expert, but Shauna certainly is. in the past, I've somehow managed to avoid making my own gf ap flour, but i finally caved in and did it, once i realized i had a decent amount of gf flours on hand. if you're only cooking gf for someone occasionally, you may be better off buying a pre-made gf ap flour (like Bob's Red Mill) which will usually work just fine. however, if you make a lot of gf stuff (or don't but like the challenge AND hate that your gf friends get left out way too often), making a batch of gf ap flour using Shauna's suggestions will serve you well. but remember, it isn't just about using gf ingredients - you have to be sure your cleaning surfaces, etc are gf too. if you're unsure about something you're making for someone who eats gf, just ask them - they are (usually!) more than happy to talk about it and give you pointers.

this recipe is one i made using Shauna's suggestion of 60% starch flours, 40% whole-grain flours. visit the link above for suggestions if you don't have these exact flours on hand (and for her tried and true ap version, which i'm sure works better than mine!). you'll notice the flours are all in grams - precision is key here!

ingredients
225 g brown rice flour
175 g sorghum flour
250 g sweet rice flour
200 g potato starch
100 g arrowroot
50 g tapioca flour/starch

instructions
weigh each flour out and mix together  in a large container, preferably one with a lid. once they're all in there, whisk them together for a few minutes, or snap the lid and shake the hell outta the container until well blended.
