Didn’t really need to order a big box of this. Didn’t really need to order a big box of this, but will get throu it, need to find more recipes.

Potato starch is gorgeous stuff – it is not ‘potato flour’, which is made from the whole potato, but a pure starch from peeled spuds. It’s silky-smooth – even silkier than arrowroot – and makes baked goods very light, as well as making a good gelling or thickening agent. However, i discovered after buying this from econa that it contains sulphites (used as a bleaching & preserving agent. If you can’t tolerate the sulphites in wine, you won’t be able to eat this. Encona’s price here was very good, and it was delivered the next day. Here are the specifications for the Encona Farina Potato Starch Packets 500 g:
