Note: Do not put up with inferior gums such as guar, carageenan, or locust bean. Xanthan: The original and still the best!
After a hard day of harvesting, what could be better than freshly-roasted Xanthan? Because of its chemical instability and consequent tendency to spontaneously explode, the raw gum is usually not available in stores. So, if you ever get out this way during the harvest, stop by for an unforgettable treat!
