Breads are common to most cultures. I have not come across a culture that does not have a bread as a staple.  How were breads made in the past and with what were they made.  Ethiopians use a couple of flours that have no gluten – teff and false banana (Enset); when I was growing up my mother made bread but added grated plantain to  the flour – she made the best breads and bakes.  Flours have never bothered me personally but I wonder if I should eliminate the gluten whether it would promote better better health.
