Can't stand the feel of cornstarch...

I like to use cornstarch or a mixture of cornstarch/flour to dredge some fried foods, but the feel of cornstarch on my fingers really makes my skin crawl. I don't know quite how to describe it, kind of dry and squeaky, I guess. Anyone else have this reaction?

  1. absolutely, I never thought to ask anybody else if they felt the same way!!

    1. Yup. It makes baked goods chalky, too.

      1. Try substituting rice flour for dredging.

        1. Heeheee-- i know what ya mean! To me, it feels like the stuff my awful old dentist used to temporarily fill a tooth. Squeak, squeak!
