It's no secret that we're big fans of Thanksgiving. Something about the mix of friends, family, cool weather and great food really lights up our spirits.We always like to do a pre-Thanksgiving test run to try out some new cooking methods and products, and this year our test kitchen was running on all cylinders, cooking up turkey, gravy, mashed sweet potatoes and (of course) stuffing.We'll admit, this year we were a little disheartened to see that our local Brooklyn TJ's was fully stocked with Gluten Free Stuffing Mix, with not even a box of the traditional stuff in sight. Sure, dietary restrictions are important, but we couldn't help but think we were making an unnecessary sacrifice by opting for GF.Unfortunately, our concerns played out as we expected, and this Stuffing Mix turned out to be a let down.Sure it was easy to prepare, but the rice/tapioca flour croutons didn't hold up at all when cooked via the casserole method, and the result was a fine couscous-like texture. Not a great consistency for stuffing.The flavor was decent, though it tasted a bit flat - it reminded us too much like the one-dimensional flavor of a bouillon cube. We also noticed an odd powdery aftertaste, that we didn't care for.All told, we much prefer the traditional, packed-with-gluten Stuffing Mix, and will steer clear of this GF option in the future. Unless your diet requires otherwise, we recommend you do the same.
