It’s difficult to explain my blogging friendships to the people in my everyday life. It’s even more challenging to explain my deep sorrow for the sudden passing of my online friend and fellow blogger Joan Hayes of Chocolate, Chocolate, and More.

Food bloggers make up a unique and tight-knit community. Although we may only meet one another once or twice (if we’re lucky!) we talk to each other daily. We read each other’s stories and stay connected through pictures. It may seem odd to some, but it’s a family, a community. We celebrate baby showers and milestones together. We support and rally on each other’s behalf.

And today we grieve together.

  • animal crackers

How to Heat Treat Flour

Recipes that call for raw flour should be heat-treated before consuming to reduce the risk of salmonella. You can prepare a large batch of heat-treated flour ahead of time, or prepare as much needed per recipe.

Microwave Method

Place all purpose flour into a microwave safe bowl.

Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between until an instant-read thermometer reaches 165 degrees F. Be sure to stir the flour before taking the temperature to avoid hot spots.

Let the flour cool and use as directed in the recipe.

Oven Method

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Spread flour onto a rimmed baking sheet. For this method you will need to use about 1/4 cup extra flour than needed to account for any sticking to the baking sheet when finished.

Stir the flour and check at 2 minute intervals. Using an instant read thermometer be sure that the flour reaches an overall temperature of 165 degrees F.

Let the flour cool and use as directed in the recipe.
