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!

A few more thoughts. I also join others in saying ditch anything with oats for at least a while, even if they are certified. For hot breakfasts, have quinoa or buckwheat instead.

Oh how awful, and it sounds like there may be a CQ deficit among your medical helpers!, CQ being curiosity quotient. But maybe they?re researching it. It?s very difficult for me, too, to understand when I?ve been glutened ? to narrow down the culprit, or even if there is a culprit. I haven?t...

You've had great suggestions from everyone! Okay, some random thoughts from me. 3 roommates.....wow!.....almost a guarantee of something going wrong daily. They can't be using loose gluten flour, not to make cakes or gravy or anything. Flour hangs in the air for hours to days. What you breat...

Where can I go besides Europe? Anyone know of cool WWOOFing farms that support celiacs? specifically in South America or Asia?
