CURRENT SEARCH: "Wondra-Flour" what is it? And can you substitute a more common fllour?

I live on the Eastern shore of Maryland and exotic ingredients are very hard to come by!

Mr_Vittles is right in the description of Wondra flour. I've even found Wondra flour at my local Wal-mart, so you might be surprised at how widely available it is (marketed as a gravy thickener, only $2 for 13 oz).

Wondra Flour is actually not All Purpose Flour, because it is made of malted barely flour and wheat flour. It is a low-protein, instant, flour, meaning it has been partially cooked as to dissolve very fast when added to hot liquid. As for acquiring Wondra Flour, Amazon is your friend. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=wondra+flour&x=0&y=0

Wondra is an exceptionally fine flour. You can make any all-purpose flour into a Wondra-style flour by buzzing it for a few seconds in your food processor with the metal (chopping) blade.

It's just a brand of all purpose flour. Any all purpose will do.
