Jeff,
I've been making applesauce for 50 years with NO sugar, and a hint cinnamon, and everyone who has ever tasted it says it's terrific!

I agree heartily with your comments, cinnamon is lovely with apples... yum, but no sugar added!

Unless the apples are really sour, not many are, you don't need to add sugar to make apple sauce, though you could add raisins for sweetening, but this is supposed to be some sort of healthy snack not chock full of sugar!

Gluten is a protein smaller then blood,bleach does not kill it as it is not a germ. I would replace scratched pans. baking dishes, tubaware, wooden utensils, colanders, etc. Throw out crumby condiment jars and any non gluten-free spices and condiments. Cast Iron can be saved and some metal utensi...

It sounds like your hives resolved. I had a six month bout with them. Antihistamines really helped. My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.

My kid has Raynauds. It freaks her classmates out. She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state. It is autoimmune. She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws. I have Hashimoto?s and celiac disease. So, having multiple autoi...

Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten. Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc. Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon. Consider reading t...
