    Like the peach and the tomato, the cherry is another fruit that is nearly synonymous with summer. I can remember the summer joys of buying fresh-picked cherries from a roadside stand, and also going to visit my grandmother, where we picked cherries from the very generous tree in her back yard.

    More recently, I was visiting family in Sonoma when a neighbor invited us over to help lighten his cherry tree. Memories like these that are all stirred up when I use cherries in dishes. This recipe uses sour cherries, lemon juice, sugar and yogurt to create a memorable and refreshing summer soup.

    The finished cold cherry soup. Photo: CC-Scaredy CatIngredients:
    1¼ pound fresh sour red pie cherries, pitted
    (use ¼ pound to make ¼ cup juice)
    ¼ cup of fresh cherry juice
    1½ teaspoons cornstarch
    ½ cup cold water
    1 tablespoon white sugar
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    1 cup whole milk yogurt
    dollop of sour cream or yogurt
    chopped chives as garnish

    Directions:
    Wash and pit 1¼ pound of cherries. Juice ¼ pound of cherries, or enough to make ¼ cup of fresh cherry juice.

    In a small saucepan, combine cornstarch, cold water, and fresh cherry juice.

    Mix well, and heat to boiling, and boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

    Add sugar and lemon juice. Mix well and remove from heat.

    Transfer to a bowl and place in refrigerator to chill.

    Chop remaining cherries.

    When liquid cools, blend in yogurt and add the chopped cherries.

    Serve chilled with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt on top, and a chopped chives as a garnish.

    This recipe comes to us from Chris Hansen.
    Makes about 2 cups
    Ingredients:
    1 cup gluten-free buttermilk
    1 cup gluten-free mayonnaise
    ¾ teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon onion powder
    ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
    1 tablespoon dried parsley
    ½ teaspoon dried marjoram
    ½ teaspoon dried thyme
    ½ teaspoon cider vinegar
    Pepper to taste
    Directions:
    In a bowl, whisk the mayo and the buttermilk together until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients, crushing the herbs in your hands before adding, and mix well. Season with pepper and additional salt to taste. Refrigerate for a couple of hours to let the flavors blend.
    You can make a dip with the same seasonings--just use sour cream instead of the buttermilk in the original recipe.
    If youre "really" organized, you can make up little baggies of just the dry ingredients ahead of time and tape the recipe to the bag...then all you have to do is measure out the mayo, buttermilk, and vinegar.
    To use fresh herbs instead, mince the herbs finely, and use 3 times as much (e.g. 3 tablespoons fresh parsley, 1 ½ teaspoons fresh marjoram and thyme).
    Optional: Additional herbs like a tablespoon or so of fresh basil.

    This is one of my favorite soups because of it’s so simple to make yet still yields a rich, rustic texture. A few simple spices and fresh ginger beautifully compliment the sweetness of the potatoes.
    Unlike a lot of soups I prepare, I like to leave this one un-blended. The softness of the potatoes pieces is really comforting. This soup goes great with a piece of gluten-free bread. I also like to top it with a mild salsa or chutney.
    Mango chutney offers a delightful surprise to the palate and makes for a sophisticated presentation.
    Ingredients:
    3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
    2 small yellow onions, chopped
    4 gloves garlic, minced
    1 tablespoon fresh ginger
    1 tablespoon curry powder
    1 teaspoon coriander
    3 tablespoons butter
    6 cups chicken stock

    Directions:
    Heat butter in a large stock pot or soup pot. Add onions and garlic and sauté until onions begin to sweat, 3-5 minutes.
    Add sweet potatoes, spices and fresh ginger, sauté for another 1-2 minutes.
    Slowly add chicken stock 1 cup at a time, slowly stirring. Gently simmer until potatoes are soft and easily pierced with a fork, about 45 minutes, depending on size of potato pieces.
    Serve in warmed bowls.

    Celiac.com 12/20/2013 - A good winter vegetable soup recipe is a must, especially for those really cold days when you need a good hot pot on the stove to warm things up and raise spirits with the aroma of good food.
    This winter vegetable soup does the trick nicely. It features tasty seasonal vegetables like squash, turnip, carry, chard and apple to deliver a rich, hearty soup. I like to add rice to mine for an extra hearty kick.
    Ingredients:
    4 leeks, white and pale-green parts only, halved lengthwise, cut into 1-inch pieces, and washed well 3 medium carrots, cut into cubes 3 medium shallots, finely chopped 3 celery stalks, cut on the bias into ½-inch-thick pieces 1 quart canned chicken stock 1 cup water 1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into cubes 1 Russet potato, cut into cubes 1 pound Swiss chard, stems trimmed, leaves coarsely chopped 1 cup peeled, cored and coarsely chopped Granny Smith apple 1 cup peeled and coarsely chopped turnip 1 cup peeled and chopped butternut squash 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 cup coarsely chopped onion 2 garlic cloves, crushed 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh dill 1 ounce piece Parmesan cheese rind Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper Directions:
    Heat oil in a large saucepan on medium-high heat.
    Add first leeks, then shallots and celery, and sauté until translucent.
    Add apple, turnip, squash, carrot, potato and sweet potato; season with salt, then sauté 5 minutes.
    Add stock, and Parmesan rind.
    Bring to a boil and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
    Add salt and pepper to taste. Cool slightly.
    Carefully pureé in a blender. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot.

    You want decadence? Want to feel like you're sitting down to the first course of a very sumptuous dinner at the finest country manor house? This rich, velvety wild chanterelle mushroom soup will do the trick.
    This recipe is a bit involved, but don't be put off. If you can get wild chanterelles, have some time cook, and want an over-the-top mushroom soup, it is well worth the effort.
    Velouté Ingredients:
    6 cups chicken stock 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 2 tablespoons potato flour Soup Ingredients:
    1½ pounds wild chanterelle mushrooms, cleaned and trimmed 1 leek, washed and minced 2 shallots, minced 3 cloves garlic, minced ½ teaspoon crushed red chili flakes 4 tablespoons unsalted butter 3 egg yolks ½ cup cream 1 shot añejo tequila ¼ teaspoon saffron Salt to taste Directions:
    Heat the stock to a bare simmer. In another pot, heat the butter until frothing and stir in the flour. Stirring all the while, let this cook for a few minutes over medium heat. Do not let it brown.
    Whisk the hot stock into the roux and let this simmer for 20 minutes, whisking often.
    Let it slowly cook down by at least ⅓ until it silky looking.
    While the velouté is simmering, make the mushroom base.
    Mince the mushrooms, leeks and shallots and sweat them in a sauté pan over medium heat with a touch of salt. Cook gently, stirring often, until the leeks and shallots are translucent and the mushrooms give up their water.
    Crumble the saffron into the tequila and add it to the mushroom base.
    Turn the heat up to high and toss or stir to combine.
    Cook until the tequila is nearly gone.
    Purée the mushroom base in a food processor. I like a slightly chunkier soup, so I do not push this puree through a fine-mesh strainer, though you may do so for a really silky finish.
    When the velouté is rich and silky, add the mushroom puree and stir well to combine. Cook this at a bare simmer for 10 minutes.
    Beat together the egg yolks and cream, then ladle, little by little, some soup base into the egg-cream mixture. This is called a liaison, the goal is to temper the eggs with the hot stock slowly, so they mix well and do not congeal, so go slow!
    Once you have 3-4 ladles of soup into egg-cream mixture, pour it all back into the soup and simmer.
    Remember: SIMMER! DO NOT BOIL!
    To finish the soup, turn off the heat and whisk in the remaining butter.
    Serve with the seared mushrooms in the center, with a dry white wine.
    For an optional mushroom garnish, slice a few chanterelles lengthwise and sear them in an dry pan until they give up their water and brown.
    This soup goes great alone, or as a prelude to a more detailed meal.

    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.

    Celiac.com 06/15/2018 - There seems to be widespread agreement in the published medical research reports that stuttering is driven by abnormalities in the brain. Sometimes these are the result of brain injuries resulting from a stroke. Other types of brain injuries can also result in stuttering. Patients with Parkinson’s disease who were treated with stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus, an area of the brain that regulates some motor functions, experienced a return or worsening of stuttering that improved when the stimulation was turned off (1). Similarly, stroke has also been reported in association with acquired stuttering (2). While there are some reports of psychological mechanisms underlying stuttering, a majority of reports seem to favor altered brain morphology and/or function as the root of stuttering (3). Reports of structural differences between the brain hemispheres that are absent in those who do not stutter are also common (4). About 5% of children stutter, beginning sometime around age 3, during the phase of speech acquisition. However, about 75% of these cases resolve without intervention, before reaching their teens (5). Some cases of aphasia, a loss of speech production or understanding, have been reported in association with damage or changes to one or more of the language centers of the brain (6). Stuttering may sometimes arise from changes or damage to these same language centers (7). Thus, many stutterers have abnormalities in the same regions of the brain similar to those seen in aphasia.
    So how, you may ask, is all this related to gluten? As a starting point, one report from the medical literature identifies a patient who developed aphasia after admission for severe diarrhea. By the time celiac disease was diagnosed, he had completely lost his faculty of speech. However, his speech and normal bowel function gradually returned after beginning a gluten free diet (8). This finding was so controversial at the time of publication (1988) that the authors chose to remain anonymous. Nonetheless, it is a valuable clue that suggests gluten as a factor in compromised speech production. At about the same time (late 1980’s) reports of connections between untreated celiac disease and seizures/epilepsy were emerging in the medical literature (9).
    With the advent of the Internet a whole new field of anecdotal information was emerging, connecting a variety of neurological symptoms to celiac disease. While many medical practitioners and researchers were casting aspersions on these assertions, a select few chose to explore such claims using scientific research designs and methods. While connections between stuttering and gluten consumption seem to have been overlooked by the medical research community, there is a rich literature on the Internet that cries out for more structured investigation of this connection. Conversely, perhaps a publication bias of the peer review process excludes work that explores this connection.
    Whatever the reason that stuttering has not been reported in the medical literature in association with gluten ingestion, a number of personal disclosures and comments suggesting a connection between gluten and stuttering can be found on the Internet. Abid Hussain, in an article about food allergy and stuttering said: “The most common food allergy prevalent in stutterers is that of gluten which has been found to aggravate the stutter” (10). Similarly, Craig Forsythe posted an article that includes five cases of self-reporting individuals who believe that their stuttering is or was connected to gluten, one of whom also experiences stuttering from foods containing yeast (11). The same site contains one report of a stutterer who has had no relief despite following a gluten free diet for 20 years (11). Another stutterer, Jay88, reports the complete disappearance of her/his stammer on a gluten free diet (12). Doubtless there are many more such anecdotes to be found on the Internet* but we have to question them, exercising more skepticism than we might when reading similar claims in a peer reviewed scientific or medical journal.
    There are many reports in such journals connecting brain and neurological ailments with gluten, so it is not much of a stretch, on that basis alone, to suspect that stuttering may be a symptom of the gluten syndrome. Rodney Ford has even characterized celiac disease as an ailment that may begin through gluten-induced neurological damage (13) and Marios Hadjivassiliou and his group of neurologists and neurological investigators have devoted considerable time and effort to research that reveals gluten as an important factor in a majority of neurological diseases of unknown origin (14) which, as I have pointed out previously, includes most neurological ailments.
    My own experience with stuttering is limited. I stuttered as a child when I became nervous, upset, or self-conscious. Although I have been gluten free for many years, I haven’t noticed any impact on my inclination to stutter when upset. I don’t know if they are related, but I have also had challenges with speaking when distressed and I have noticed a substantial improvement in this area since removing gluten from my diet. Nonetheless, I have long wondered if there is a connection between gluten consumption and stuttering. Having done the research for this article, I would now encourage stutterers to try a gluten free diet for six months to see if it will reduce or eliminate their stutter. Meanwhile, I hope that some investigator out there will research this matter, publish her findings, and start the ball rolling toward getting some definitive answers to this question.

    Celiac.com 06/14/2018 - Refractory celiac disease type II (RCDII) is a rare complication of celiac disease that has high death rates. To diagnose RCDII, doctors identify a clonal population of phenotypically aberrant intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs). 
    However, researchers really don’t have much data regarding the frequency and significance of clonal T cell receptor (TCR) gene rearrangements (TCR-GRs) in small bowel (SB) biopsies of patients without RCDII. Such data could provide useful comparison information for patients with RCDII, among other things.
    To that end, a research team recently set out to try to get some information about the frequency and importance of clonal T cell receptor (TCR) gene rearrangements (TCR-GRs) in small bowel (SB) biopsies of patients without RCDII. The research team included Shafinaz Hussein, Tatyana Gindin, Stephen M Lagana, Carolina Arguelles-Grande, Suneeta Krishnareddy, Bachir Alobeid, Suzanne K Lewis, Mahesh M Mansukhani, Peter H R Green, and Govind Bhagat.
    They are variously affiliated with the Department of Pathology and Cell Biology, and the Department of Medicine at the Celiac Disease Center, New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, New York, USA. Their team analyzed results of TCR-GR analyses performed on SB biopsies at our institution over a 3-year period, which were obtained from eight active celiac disease, 172 celiac disease on gluten-free diet, 33 RCDI, and three RCDII patients and 14 patients without celiac disease. 
    Clonal TCR-GRs are not infrequent in cases lacking features of RCDII, while PCPs are frequent in all disease phases. TCR-GR results should be assessed in conjunction with immunophenotypic, histological and clinical findings for appropriate diagnosis and classification of RCD.
    The team divided the TCR-GR patterns into clonal, polyclonal and prominent clonal peaks (PCPs), and correlated these patterns with clinical and pathological features. In all, they detected clonal TCR-GR products in biopsies from 67% of patients with RCDII, 17% of patients with RCDI and 6% of patients with gluten-free diet. They found PCPs in all disease phases, but saw no significant difference in the TCR-GR patterns between the non-RCDII disease categories (p=0.39). 
    They also noted a higher frequency of surface CD3(−) IELs in cases with clonal TCR-GR, but the PCP pattern showed no associations with any clinical or pathological feature. 
    Repeat biopsy showed that the clonal or PCP pattern persisted for up to 2 years with no evidence of RCDII. The study indicates that better understanding of clonal T cell receptor gene rearrangements may help researchers improve refractory celiac diagnosis.

    Celiac.com 06/13/2018 - There have been numerous reports that olmesartan, aka Benicar, seems to trigger sprue‐like enteropathy in many patients, but so far, studies have produced mixed results, and there really hasn’t been a rigorous study of the issue. A team of researchers recently set out to assess whether olmesartan is associated with a higher rate of enteropathy compared with other angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs).
    The research team included Y.‐H. Dong; Y. Jin; TN Tsacogianis; M He; PH Hsieh; and JJ Gagne. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics, Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA, USA; the Faculty of Pharmacy, School of Pharmaceutical Science at National Yang‐Ming University in Taipei, Taiwan; and the Department of Hepato‐Gastroenterology, Chi Mei Medical Center in Tainan, Taiwan.
    To get solid data on the issue, the team conducted a cohort study among ARB initiators in 5 US claims databases covering numerous health insurers. They used Cox regression models to estimate hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for enteropathy‐related outcomes, including celiac disease, malabsorption, concomitant diagnoses of diarrhea and weight loss, and non‐infectious enteropathy. In all, they found nearly two million eligible patients. 
    They then assessed those patients and compared the results for olmesartan initiators to initiators of other ARBs after propensity score (PS) matching. They found unadjusted incidence rates of 0.82, 1.41, 1.66 and 29.20 per 1,000 person‐years for celiac disease, malabsorption, concomitant diagnoses of diarrhea and weight loss, and non‐infectious enteropathy respectively. 
    After PS matching comparing olmesartan to other ARBs, hazard ratios were 1.21 (95% CI, 1.05‐1.40), 1.00 (95% CI, 0.88‐1.13), 1.22 (95% CI, 1.10‐1.36) and 1.04 (95% CI, 1.01‐1.07) for each outcome. Patients aged 65 years and older showed greater hazard ratios for celiac disease, as did patients receiving treatment for more than 1 year, and patients receiving higher cumulative olmesartan doses.
    This is the first comprehensive multi‐database study to document a higher rate of enteropathy in olmesartan initiators as compared to initiators of other ARBs, though absolute rates were low for both groups.
