Apricot Compote (Gluten-Free)

This dish is one of my favorites to make in late summer, when apricots are at their peak of ripeness. Nectarines and peaches also make great substitutes. Whatever you choose, go for the ripest, most fragrant fruit you can find. I’ll often toss in some raisins or apples for texture if I have them on hand, but the sweet-nutty flavor combination is perfect on its own. Dried apricots also work well outside the Summer months.

1 pound apricots, halved and pitted
⅓  cup pine nuts
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon almond extract
1 cup water
Juice from 1 lime
Basil to garnish (optional)

Directions:
In a small skillet, melt butter over medium heat and sauté pine nuts until lightly toasted, no more than 2 minutes. Set aside.

In a saucepan, combine apricots, honey, lemon juice, cinnamon, almond extract and water. Simmer over medium heat until sauce is thick and syrupy, up to 15 minutes. Stir in pine nuts and serve warm over yogurt or ice cream. Garnish with a pinch of chopped basil.

Are you sure you do not have fractures? I fractured two vertebrae two months after my celiac disease diagnosis DOING NOTHING!!!! Turns out I have osteoporosis from untreated celiac disease. ? Consider a bone scan.

Be sure to let us know how it goes! Help keep them in business by writing a review on Find Me Gluten Free! Enjoy! ?

I'm a naturalist -- I don't use drugs, creams, etc. I do, however, scratch** the rash until I'm almost bleeding and then dump isopropyl alcohol in it -- that relieves the itch for quite some time. (Stings at first though.) I get the rashes on my legs. ANYWAY, I have found that a gluten-free diet is the only (or best) approach -- it's certainly the most natural, in my opinion. It took six months before I felt I was cleansed of gluten. I went nine months (or more) without a rash. Then, I mistakenly ate some soup with barley in it. Got the rash. I let it run its course while getting back to & staying on a gluten-free diet. My best advice is just to stay on a gluten-free diet. Be strong, brave. You can do it! ** I should clarify that when my rashes start itching, I can't help but scratch (excessively). I am not suggesting scratching yourself (with or without cause) as a means to an end. Don't scratch if you can.

Nicotinamide helps a great deal. Nicotinamide is a form of Vitamin B3, also called Niacin. Many new Celiacs have trouble absorbing sufficient vitamins and minerals because of intestinal damage. Malabsorption causes malnutrition. Deficiencies of the B Complex vitamins, especially niacin, and vitamins A and D often manifest as skin rashes and exacerbate DH. Recent research has found that treatment with nicotinamide and tetracycline effectively treats DH. Ask your doctor to check for vitamin deficiencies if you haven't already. Also dapsone use may cause iron, B12, and folate deficiencies which may lead to anemia. These should be monitored as well. Hope this helps.

I'm so excited! The Austin area has a new gluten-free restaurant - Guaco Taco. I'm going there tomorrow night for dinner. I love Mexican food and miss being able to eat it out.
