Where the only thing not going into the compost is the bread!
We have bundled up all the waste-free essentials in our Alternative Starter Kit for you to start making your own gluten-free bread without landfill waste. Removing single-use plastic when living a gluten-free diet can be difficult, there is the need to avoid cross-contamination between products and the environment but the heavy use of plastic in packaging is frightening.
The Alternative Starter Kit contains:
500g Wholesome Bread Mix - compostable packaging
500g Spicy Fruit Bread Mix - compostable packaging
Cotton Bread Bag
Large or Small Traditional Bread Tin
80g Yeast in a resealable glass jar
Please note: your breadmix is now in compostable pouches without the fabric outer
Small Bread Tins: These take a half measure - you will only need to use 250g breadmix, 300mls water, 20-30g sugar and 8g yeast (or a good heaped teaspoon) or alternatively make a full mixture and have a small loaf and some burger buns. Bake your loaf for 25mins or until you tap the top and it sounds hollow. Buns will need 20-25minsOur Packaging
We use either compostable or reusable packaging:
Hessian- bury in your garden or repurposed it.
Brown paper - pop into your compost when you’re done or get your iron out and reuse it- seriously!
Cotton String - you could compost but a piece of string is always handy so coil it up and reuse.
Brown paper tape
Our boxes are all stamped with our NZ made stamp, once we would have used a sticker and created landfill waste with the backing.
These are great as a starter kit for yourself or as a gift for a loved one to help reduce single-use plastic waste!
