I don't have the cookbook anymore so I can list the recipe or even check it out, but I know that maple syrup was used and probably cornstarch/arrowroot.....cooked until it changed color, constantly stirring. I believe the recipe was from the Micheff Sisters although it hadn't made it into a cookbook yet, it probably has by now. Their cookbooks are vegan and obviously not gluten free.

I don't know how much of an archive 3ABN has but it was from a show they did on there. You may want to check it out just so you can see the recipes and if that is listed among one of the shows. You'd have to look at all the shows the Micheff Sisters did.

You can make a simple caramel by dissolving sugar in water and then boiling off the water. It won't be a creamy sauce though if that is what you are looking for.

Here is a site that shows how to make candy apples. I am hoping to make them for Halloween. You could probably use their recipe for your caramel depending on what you need the caramel for.

That's not the same as caramel. That's to make the red, hard candy coated apples.

I don't think caramels can be made that are dairy free since they are made of butter and milk or cream.

Gluten-free Casein-free Caramel Apples

5 or 6 tart apples (with sticks)

1. In medium saucepan, melt margarine.

2. Stir in sugar, syrup, vanilla and water.

3. Bring mixture to a boil and keep boiling for about several minutesuntil a candy thermometer reads 245 F.

4. Remove caramel from heat. Put a Popsicle stick in the center ofeach apple. When the mixture has stopped bubbling, swirl each applein the caramel syrup to coat. Place apples on a well greased cookiesheet to harden.

Thanks for the recipes and ideas.

I needed the carmel to be creamy and soft, not hard. It's for a layered graham cracker cookie. One of my favorites!!! I assume that using soy milk and dairy free butter or Crisco would change the way the traditional carmel comes out?? Maybe??

I make a nice caramel by substituting organic coconut milk for the cream and extra virgin coconut oil for the butter in a normal caramel recipe. Works for me. I've used agave syrup in that recipe successfully too.

I just use my pre-gluten and casein-free recipe and sub vegan and safe versions. I made condensed milk from scratch and use that.

Easy way to make a soft caramel is to cut top off can of sweetend condensed milk, set it in a pan of water and bring it to a boil (the water) the milk will carmilize. Have forgotton how long to do it, but should be on net or you will be able to tell by looking.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
