This tangy, refreshing lemon-ade has stood the test of time not just for extracting loads of vitamin C from the rind, but for exceptional taste. Someone can always be found to do the stomping, especially children. Makes a quart. New wooden stompers can be easily bought, or have fun looking for the old, turned ones found at garage sales or flea markets.
1 large fresh lemon
1/2 cup Gluten Free Works fructose
1 quart of fresh water
A heavy glass pitcher and a wooden stomper.
Scrub the lemon with baking soda on a clean wet cloth.
Rinse well then cut into thin slices.
Toss the lemon slices into the pitcher with the fructose.
Stomp a few minutes until the juice is rendered, but not so long as to mash the rinds.
The Colorado Rockies have opened a dedicated gluten-free* concession stand at Coors Field, the stadium where the Rockies play. This may be the first dedicated gluten-free concession stand in Major League Baseball.
The menu features hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, chips, cookies, brownies, soda, water and gluten-free Redbridge beer.
The gluten-free stand is located behind Section 147 on the left field concourse.
This specific location was created in response to increasing requests for gluten-free options from fans with Celiac Disease.

Here is the list of over 300 Signs, Symptoms, Associated Disorders and Complications directly or indirectly resulting from celiac disease.
Gluten Free Works, Inc. was the first organization in the world to publish this information in its comprehensive book, “Recognizing Celiac Disease.” This list is now being used by celiac disease centers, national celiac organizations and health organizations worldwide.

The added nutrition of applesauce and rice bran puts these mouthwatering pancakes a step above their plain cousin. Cinnamon boosts the flavor and aids digestion. So give it a try.
I cup fine white rice flour
¼ cup brown rice flour
¼ cup tapioca flour or cornstarch
1 tablespoon rice bran
¾ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon xanthan gum
2 teaspoons fructose
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 large eggs
½ cup natural applesauce
½ cup water or milk or milk substitute (more if you like thinner pancakes)
3 tablespoons oil
Griddle or large skillet.
Heat your griddle to 350 degrees F.
Combine dry ingredients in mixing bowl and whisk together with wire whip. Add liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix together with a fork to blend. Mixture may sit up to 5 minutes, but do not stir again or you will lose fluffiness.
Lightly grease the griddle or heavy pan, spreading a teaspoon across the surface with a small piece of folded paper towel. Set the towel aside to refresh the surface if pancakes start to stick.
Scoop a few tablespoons to make the pancake size you prefer onto your heated griddle. Allow them to cook until the bottom is set and bubbles begin to appear around edges. Don’t worry if you flip too soon, just be quick about it and they’ll be fine. On the other hand, if you wait until the top is dry, the pancakes will be tough and disappointing.
Remove to heated plates. Serve with choice of syrup or jam. If you make these pancakes thick, you can eat them out of hand without any added sweetener. If you make them thin, you can roll them around whipped cream. Serves 4.
