    Do you really mean a 1/4 CUP of rosemary??? Ingredient list doesn't mention Orange juice, yet the directions do...please clarify both issues.

    I made this recipe and it did not come out like the picture. I used the rosemary as called for and I used lemon juice and lemon zest. The flavors of fresh rosemary and pumpkin puree with the limited amount of sugar called for in the recipe, did not give me a taste I would associate with a piece of apple strudel.

    Re: Apple Strudel Recipe.

    Confused already. 1. Makes 8 strudels? 2. The photo shows a rolled strudel slice (which is made from a very thin pastry dough).

    How do you end up with 8 strudels? or even 1 strudel when all ingredients are spread evenly into a baking dish and the flour mixture is poured on top? This will not come out looking the the photo or 'strudel' - not mentioning the addition of rosemary? Sounds more like it could be an 'apple crumble' except you say it is unique and not like that. ?? Not makin' it!

    This recipe comes to us from Karen Hutton.
    Although it asks for a crust I just pour the pumpkin-mixture into a glass pie dish and cool. It slices out just like a regular piece of pie.
    And remember to use gluten-free products.
    Pumpkin Chiffon Pie
    1 envelope (l tablespoon) unflavored gelatin
    ¼ cup cold water
    3 eggs, separated
    ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
    1 ¼ cups solid pack canned pumpkin
    ½ cup milk
    ½ teaspoon ground ginger
    ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
    ½ teaspoon ground allspice
    ½ cup granulated sugar
    1 - 9 or 10 inch baked pie shell
    Soften gelatin in cold water. Combine together in heavy saucepan the egg yolks, brown sugar, pumpkin, milk, salt, and spices. Cook over low heat, stirring continually until thick and smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in gelatin until dissolved. Chill until mixture thickens to consistency of unbeaten egg white. Place the egg whites in small bowl until very foamy.
    Add granulated sugar, l tablespoonful at a time, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Transfer to large mixer bowl. Mixing on low add pumpkin mixture slowly, mixing for l minute or until well blended, moving bowl control back and forth frequently during mixing. Stop mixer; scrape sides of bowl and beater. Pour mixture into baked pie shell. If desired, garnish with pecan halves. Chill for 2 hours or longer before serving.

    1 bag cranberries (12 oz.)
    ¾ cup sugar
    1 teaspoon grated orange zest
    ¼ cup orange juice
    2 tablespoons Grand Marnier
    1 cup heavy whipping cream
    Rinse and pick over cranberries and place in a large saucepan. Add sugar and cook over medium heat about 5 minutes, until cranberries have burst and the mixture has a thick jam-like consistency. Cool.
    Rub through a strainer to remove skins. Stir in zest, orange juice and liqueur and mix thoroughly. Whip cream and fold into cranberry puree. Place mousse in bowl or wine glasses or place in a serving bowl. Decorate with whipped cream before serving if desired.

    A light, fruit-focused recipe that tastes great with whatever fresh fruit you have on hand! Video demonstration link included!
    Ingredients:
    ½ cup Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour*
    1 ½ cup gluten-free oats
    ½ cup brown sugar
    ½ cup (8 Tbs.) cold butter or Earth Balance Buttery Sticks
    1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
    4 cups rinsed, chopped fruit
    ¼ - ½ granulated cane sugar
    ½ tsp. almond extract (if using peaches)
    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 375F (static) or 350F (convection).
    In a large bowl, add ¼ - ½ cup granulated cane sugar to the fruit, to taste, and pour into an 8 x 8 inch baking pan. Set aside to allow the sugar to encourage syrup to form.
    In another bowl, combine the Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour with the gluten-free oats, brown sugar and cinnamon. Cut in the butter or Buttery Sticks with a fork or pastry cutter the mixture becomes a rough crumble. Crumble the mixture over the fruit in the baking pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until the topping is light brown and crispy. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream – there are soy and coconut versions available now that are great options for non-dairy toppings.

    After dinner at a local Mediterranean restaurant, the waitress suggested my friend and I try the farmer's market fresh lemon soufflé for dessert. What followed was nothing short of culinary bliss, with ooh's and ahh's over the sweet, airy, lemony, delight. Realizing that most soufflé's contain a bit of flour, I resolved to replicate the joy in a gluten-free version. I've done a pretty good version using just corn starch, but I've been experimenting with various flours and starches as a substitute for the 2 tablespoons of wheat flour the recipe usually requires. This is the best I've come up with, so far. I will continue to tinker, as should you. Enjoy!
    Ingredients:
    1/2 stick of butter (for greasing cooking dishes)
    1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
    1/2 cup whole milk, raw if possible
    1/4 cup fresh Meyer lemon juice*
    1 teaspoon grated Meyer lemon zest*
    2 large egg yolks
    3 large egg whites
    1 tablespoon sorghum flour
    1/2 tablespoon potato starch (plus a dash more, as needed)
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar (McCormick's)
    Powdered sugar (gluten-free)
    *Note - If Meyer lemons are not available, you may substitute regular lemons.
    Directions:
    Place oven rack in the lowest possible position. Heat oven to 400° F.
    2. Butter 8 (6-ounce) ramekins, and dust lightly with 2 tablespoons sugar; refrigerate until ready to use.
    3. Mix milk and lemon zest in a small saucepan and scald over medium heat. Remove from heat, and cool.
    Use an electric mixer, or hand beat remaining 1/2 cup sugar and 2 egg yolks in a large bowl 3 to 4 minutes or until light and fluffy, scraping down side of bowl several times.
    Gradually mix in sorghum flour and 1/2 tablespoon of potato starch until blended, scraping down side of bowl.
    Add milk mixture to egg mixture, and mix thoroughly. Add lemon juice and salt.
    Heat mixture on low (or in a double boiler), and cook, stirring constantly, about 3 minutes or until thick and creamy (add more potato starch as necessary).
    Remove from heat, and cool completely.
    You can do this up to 2 days in advance, and store it sealed in the refrigerator. Just make sure you bring it to room temperature before cooking.)
    Place egg whites and cream of tartar into a separate bowl and mix at medium speed for about 10 seconds.
    Increase speed to medium-high, and beat 1 to 2 minutes or until soft peaks form. (Do not over-beat; egg whites will appear dry and granular if they are over-beaten.)
    Stir about one-quarter of egg whites into cooled egg mixture to lighten it.
    Fold in remaining whites gently, using a rubber spatula, just until incorporated. Be careful not to over-mix.
    Pour mixture gently into prepared soufflé cups to top of rim.
    Cleaning the rim with your finger will help the soufflés to rise properly.
    Bake at 400° for 10 minutes; lower heat to 350°, and bake 4 more minutes or until the soufflé has risen above dish, the outside is set, and the inside remains a bit loose and jiggly when shaken
    Remove from oven, dust with powdered sugar, and serve immediately in the same containers.

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.

    Celiac.com 06/18/2018 - Celiac disease has been mainly associated with Caucasian populations in Northern Europe, and their descendants in other countries, but new scientific evidence is beginning to challenge that view. Still, the exact global prevalence of celiac disease remains unknown.  To get better data on that issue, a team of researchers recently conducted a comprehensive review and meta-analysis to get a reasonably accurate estimate the global prevalence of celiac disease. 
    The research team included P Singh, A Arora, TA Strand, DA Leffler, C Catassi, PH Green, CP Kelly, V Ahuja, and GK Makharia. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi, India; Innlandet Hospital Trust, Lillehammer, Norway; Centre for International Health, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway; Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Gastroenterology Research and Development, Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc, Cambridge, MA; Department of Pediatrics, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy; Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; USA Celiac Disease Center, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; and the Department of Gastroenterology and Human Nutrition, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.
    For their review, the team searched Medline, PubMed, and EMBASE for the keywords ‘celiac disease,’ ‘celiac,’ ‘tissue transglutaminase antibody,’ ‘anti-endomysium antibody,’ ‘endomysial antibody,’ and ‘prevalence’ for studies published from January 1991 through March 2016. 
    The team cross-referenced each article with the words ‘Asia,’ ‘Europe,’ ‘Africa,’ ‘South America,’ ‘North America,’ and ‘Australia.’ They defined celiac diagnosis based on European Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition guidelines. The team used 96 articles of 3,843 articles in their final analysis.
    Overall global prevalence of celiac disease was 1.4% in 275,818 individuals, based on positive blood tests for anti-tissue transglutaminase and/or anti-endomysial antibodies. The pooled global prevalence of biopsy-confirmed celiac disease was 0.7% in 138,792 individuals. That means that numerous people with celiac disease potentially remain undiagnosed.
    Rates of celiac disease were 0.4% in South America, 0.5% in Africa and North America, 0.6% in Asia, and 0.8% in Europe and Oceania; the prevalence was 0.6% in female vs 0.4% males. Celiac disease was significantly more common in children than adults.
    This systematic review and meta-analysis showed celiac disease to be reported worldwide. Blood test data shows celiac disease rate of 1.4%, while biopsy data shows 0.7%. The prevalence of celiac disease varies with sex, age, and location. 
    This review demonstrates a need for more comprehensive population-based studies of celiac disease in numerous countries.  The 1.4% rate indicates that there are 91.2 million people worldwide with celiac disease, and 3.9 million are in the U.S.A.
