Kitteh, it's an anti-predatory adaptation. Just like star nosed mole rats, which no other animal will ever eat because, eww, gross.

I must not gluten. Gluten is the mind-killer. Gluten is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my gluten. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the gluten has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I have to take exception with the directions a little. The first step is, for some reason, "mix the yeast and warm water" when I'm pretty sure the proper form is "give water to the bread".

Of course, you may have guests who need a gluten-free dessert, in which case it's polite to provide an alternative dish. Consider preparing a refreshing Frank Sherbert.

Be sure to avoid the Brian Sherbert, though. So many disgusting artificial flavorings for a sugar-free dessert that fails to remotely resemble the thing people actually love.

Our fathers ate manna in the desert,
In the burning places we whirlwinds came.
Lord, save us from that horrible land!
Save us…Oh-H-H-H, save us
From the dry and thirsty land.

OHHHH-H-H-H,
the Galacian rye works well in a pie,
and the Arrakeen as a soft roll!
But if you desire bread that'll rise like the dead,
Try to bake a Caladanian casserole!

A loaf is supported by four things ... the leavening of the yeast, the protein of the wheat, the hydration of the water and the savor of the salt. But all of these are as nothing ... without a loafer who knows the art of pinching. Make that the science of your tradition!

This is forecasting about two years in advance, but I wouldn't mind a FanFare viewing of Twin Peaks that presupposes Agent Cooper and Big Ed are, in fact, Paul and Stilgar, brought here by some combination of spice overdose and demon mischief.

After your friends take their Pintrest shots, treat it like a baby worm you’re melting into the Water of Life. Wait, don’t. Soaking it in a puddle won’t help the flavor. Instead, cut it into rings and drizzle a little more glaze on each slice.

If only fat, sugar, and carbs could extend life and broaden the mind without an infusion of the spice melange.

If you need a beverage to pair with this, you can't go wrong with something piping hot from the Tleilaxu axolatte tanks.

There is a shop in my neighborhood that sells a pumpkin fudge around Thanksgiving. It's a sort of tan-orange, very chewy, and comes in chewing-tobacco like plugs. I feel like this is as close as I will ever get to eating the spice melange.


Now, if only they would take my advice and add hash to it, so I could actually see through time.

You might like it enough that you go back for more and find a recipe for Brian Sherbert, but don't be fooled: you'll end up with an ice cream dish full of ball bearings soaking in kerosene.

The key thing is you can't use butter; instead you need to substitute in a condensed oil made from the strained liquid of the milk of an Arrakeen goat.

That is to say, the shortening of the whey.

I made this last night and, misreading the directions, put the filling ingredients into the dough... and then had to make up more of the filling (using garam masala). Double spice + double butter = mind altering, mouth watering devotion. Plus a lemon glaze!
