I find that one of the most challenging things about the gluten-free diet is finding sauces that are gluten free. For people with multiple intolerances or allergies, things become almost impossible.
Luckily, it is really easy to make your own sauces at home. I’ve even found recipes for condensed soups! Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Montreal-based gluten-free microbrewery Brasseurs Sans Gluten is famous for its Glutenberg ale, and it’s finally available in Nova Scotia! Halifax-based Garrison Brewing has taken on distribution of Glutenberg Blonde, which can now be found in NSLC stores across the province. (Tip: To see if Glutenberg is available in your local store, search for it, and click “Find it” on the product page.)
We were first to purchase a six-pack from the Sackville (Downsview) NSLC last night!
It was $16.99 – not bad for a gluten-free beer. I really liked the taste of it: crisp, light, refreshing, and no nasty rice flavour.
There’s also an interesting article in the Chronicle Herald about Glutenberg. You can read it here. (Fun fact: Garrison chose to distribute Glutenberg because president Brian Titus’s wife has Celiac disease.)
