    This recipe comes to us from Lori Nies.

    (Dose: 1-2 tablespoons per day for adults)

    1 pound prunes
    1 pound raisins or pitted dates
    1 pound figs
    4 ounces Senna tea leaves (found at health food stores)
    1 cup gluten-free brown sugar
    1 cup lemon juice

    Boil 4 cups of water, add to the tea leaves and steep for five minutes. Strain the tea and pour two cups of the tea liquid into a large pot, discard the rest. Add the fruit (except lemon) to this pot and boil for five minutes.

    Remove from heat; add the sugar and lemon juice and mix. Allow the mixture to cool.

    Use mixer, blender or food processor to turn the fruit mixture into a smooth paste. Spoon it into jars or freezer containers and store in the freezer.

    Note: This fruit paste does not freeze solid, but keeps well indefinitely in the freezer. It can be spread on toast or used as topping - or if all else fails, just take it like medicine.

  • About Me

    Celiac.com's Founder and CEO, Scott was diagnosed with celiac disease  in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. Scott launched the site that later became Celiac.com in 1995 "To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives."  In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
