Gluten-Free Panforte for the Road

Next week I'm heading out to hike from village-to-village in Ecuador and the Inca Trail, including Machu Picchu, in Peru. My ZIX Cookies Panforte is on both my packing and gift lists. I slice the Panforte thin and wrap for nibbling on the trail and I slice into wedges for gifts to friends I make along my journey. Wrapped tightly, the treat lasts for months. I’m heading out for 3 months.

Gluten-Free Panforte for the RoadIngredients:
Nuts and fruit:
1 cup whole toasted hazelnuts
½ cup whole toasted almonds
5 oz. dried figs
3 oz. citron (candied Buddha hand fruit)

Dry Ingredients:
½ cup sorghum flour
¼ cup tapioca flour
2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
2 Tbsp. chopped or crushed fennel seeds
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
½ tsp. ground ginger
½ tsp. ground coriander
½ tsp. black pepper
¼ tsp. ground cloves
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg

Liquid ingredients (kinda!)
2/3 c. honey
2/3 c. sugar

Instructions:
Pre-heat your oven to 300F, then;
Prep your baking pan:

  1. Use an eight inch spring form pan (if possible). A cake pan can work but it’s more difficult to get the panforte out (of the pan). You can also use a 9 inch spring form pan. Cut rice paper to fit the inside bottom of the pan. You can use parchment paper but it’s sometimes hard to peel off the bottom of the panforte after baking. Melt a couple tablespoons of butter and brush the bottom of the pan liberally. The add the rice paper circle and brush with butter again. Then brush the sides of the pan with any remaining butter. Set aside.
  2. Prep your nuts and fruits: Chop the whole figs and citron into ¼ inch pieces and put into a large bowl.
  3. Add the whole nuts to the bowl with the figs and citron.
  4. Prep your dry ingredients: In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients and whisk to mix well.
  5. Then dump the mixed dry ingredients into the nut and fruit bowl. Mix thoroughly with a large spoon.
  6. Prep your wet ingredients: Ok, now for the fun part. Put your honey and sugar in a medium size sauce pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture comes to a full boil (one that you can’t stir down). Boil for a quick 15 second count. Quickly dump your bowl of mixed ingredients into the saucepan and mix ingredients together quickly (like in 30 seconds or less). You need to complete stirring before the honey/sugar syrup cools (and gets too hard to spread). Put the wet mixture into the spring form pan and spread out to the edges and as evenly as possible. Don’t stress or forget to breathe! We’re having fun, right?

Put the pan into the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes (for 8 inch pan) or 25-30 for a 9 inch pan. The batter will done on the sides and slightly bubbling in the middle. If uncertain how the baking is progressing, under bake a bit rather than over bake. The honey/sugar syrup when over baked makes a rather ‘hard’ panforte.

Let the panforte set (to warm) on a rack. Then run a knife around the edge of the panforte and release the spring form pan. Once the panforte is totally cool you can ‘pry’ it from the bottom (of the spring form pan).

Panforte is then ready to cut in wedges and wrap for gifts or for bike rides or hikes or with coffee or tea. One 8 inch panforte, because of its richness, can serve a pretty big group (at least a dozen).

Some with bipolar dysfunction may attempt to treat their signs with alcohol or drugs.

JaneWhoLovesRain, what is odder to me than that there is an older disease that Doctor's have forgotten that explains many of the same symptom's and doctor's do not even think about it today since the "War on Pellagra" was declared over a 100 years and why doctor's don't (at least in the West) think about it any more. Dr. Heaney wrote a nice online article about this topic. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ Here is fairly recent article about how Pellagra can present in patients and the title says' it all from the International Journal of Dermatology. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/227807440_Pellagra_Dermatitis_dementia_and_diarrhea Dermatitis, dementia and Diarrhea are the 3 D's (4th D is death) of Pellagra. Typically it is only diagnosed today if you are in a subset of the population like an alcoholic for example or you have a gastric bypass. See this article from the New England Journal of Medicine http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMicm050641 and despite all the signs of Pellagra (skin issues etc.) . . .. Pellagra in it native tongue (Italian) where it was first diagnosed was called "rough/sour skin" who knows that today??????? Very few I would venture to guess. The NEJM can only say they have "Pellagra-like dermatitis" it has been so long since any doctor's seen it they can't (with confidence) diagnose it clinically. But taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can help alleviate your symptom's if indeed the DH of Celiac is the dermatitis of Pellagra being medically misdiagnosed. Here is a an article featured on celiac.com about why/how Pellagra can be confused for Celiac disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Because they haven't seen Pellagra in 75+ years no one recognizes it anymore. ****this is not medical advice. I hope this is helpful. Knitty Kitty and I are the Niacin warriors on this board. See this thread where Knitty Kitty says Niacin helped the itching of DH. If that is so then it might help your DH (if you have it) and your GI problems too if they are caused by co-morbid Pellagra. see my blog post about where I say "I had Celiac Disease and Developed Pellagra" that talks about this in more detail. Again good luck and your continued journey and I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2: 7 ?Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things? this included. posterboy by the grace of God,

I should say I am confused about how to interpret--- Does this mean celiac or no celiac? Thank you all---I greatly appreciate it.

KathleenH, I swear by MatteosPizza and they make National Delivery. I have been known to buy them by the dozen. https://www.matteospizza.com/ BellaMonica's is not a bad corn based crust. By not bad I mean "suprisingly good" that can be bought at most grocery stores. Here is there ZIP locator page to see if they are carried in your local area. http://glutenfreepizza.typepad.com/gluten-free-pizza/where-to-find-bella-monica.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,

Hey all--have Hashimoto's and am being worked up for epigastric discomfort and IBS like symptoms--- My blood work had an IgA within the lower end of normal range, negative TTG, but weakly positive DGP. My endoscopy showed a "nodular" duodenum with the biopsy stating there was "reactive lymphoid hyperplasia"... I have a follow-up with the GI in 3 weeks. Wondering about any help?

DH wasn't linked to celiacs until 1967 from my research...
