Anti-Constipation Fruit Paste (Gluten-Free)

This recipe comes to us from Lori Nies.

(Dose: 1-2 tablespoons per day for adults)

1 pound prunes
1 pound raisins or pitted dates
1 pound figs
4 ounces Senna tea leaves (found at health food stores)
1 cup gluten-free brown sugar
1 cup lemon juice

Boil 4 cups of water, add to the tea leaves and steep for five minutes. Strain the tea and pour two cups of the tea liquid into a large pot, discard the rest. Add the fruit (except lemon) to this pot and boil for five minutes.

Remove from heat; add the sugar and lemon juice and mix. Allow the mixture to cool.

Use mixer, blender or food processor to turn the fruit mixture into a smooth paste. Spoon it into jars or freezer containers and store in the freezer.

Note: This fruit paste does not freeze solid, but keeps well indefinitely in the freezer. It can be spread on toast or used as topping - or if all else fails, just take it like medicine.

Do we need to use fresh fruits for the anti-constipation fruit paste?

To add to the good advice above.

I felt worse after I restarted gluten free diet after my challenge and had a rougher time than I had first time round. So I don't think its unusual. Give your body time to recover.
