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.

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

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.

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.

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.
