Homemade Rice Flour

Gluten free baking can become pretty pricey if you rely on store bought GF flours. With a little bit of time and effort you can make your own for a fraction of the cost. I have used this method to make brown and white rice flour. I plan to try it with Sushi Rice to make Sweet Rice Flour too.

3 cups rice
4 cups water

In a medium size bowl place rice and water. Swish around well and allow to soak for 1-2 hours.

Drain the water away, rinse with fresh and drain well again.

Spread rice out over a clean cloth, top with another cloth, pat well, remove top cloth and allow to dry for 2-3 hours "stirring" it around every so often.

Heat a large skillet over medium low heat.

Place all the rice in there and slowly roast until fully dry and slightly golden, as you can see in this photo, I OVER toasted, but it is still good for savory items, not so much for baking sweets.

Allow to cool completely. Then 1 cup at a time place in a blender and blend until very fine.

Run through a fine mesh sieve to remove any clumps

Make sure it is thoroughly cooled then store in an airtight container(in the fridge or freezer for longer storage)
