Favorite GF Products: BreadSRSLY’s San Francisco Sourdough Bread

Gluten-free friends: I’m so excited! After years of searching and countless disappointing purchases, I have found the holy grail of glutenless goodness—REAL San Francisco sourdough bread!

It’s crusty, it’s the right texture, and it’s truly sour. It’s been a long time since I’ve tasted the real thing, but BreadSRSLY’s sourdough tastes exactly like I remember. I don’t know how Sadie does it, but she’s my new hero. Or heroine. Whichever she wants to be. :-)

Order at http://www.breadsrsly.com …and be prepared to sell your firstborn—at $33 plus tax and shipping for three smallish loaves, this bread isn’t cheap, to say the least. But REAL sourdough bread—how can we possibly resist?!
