To Make a Colorless Glaze:

Use fruit juice with less color like peach to make a clear glaze. However, for a completely colorless glaze, replace the fruit juice with water.


To Make Red Glaze:

Use a red juice like cranberry or cranberry apple to make red fruit glaze. However, if you desire a strawberry flavored glaze, you can make your own strawberry juice by blending 1 cup of strawberries and 1/2 cup of cold water in a blender or food processor. Then strain it in a fine mesh strainer.


To Make Fruit Pie Filling:

To make fruit pie filling, use the same type or similar juice as you are using for fruit to make this fruit glaze. Then stir the fruit into the glaze. If you are using firm fruit such as apples, saute the fruit first simmer in a little juice.

To Make Sauce:

Use half of the amount of arrowroot flour or cornstarch to make a sauce to plate desserts.


To Make a Savory Condiment to Replace Ketchup or Barbecue Sauce:

Use half of the arrowroot powder and add 1/4 teaspoon each garlic powder and ginger powder. Season with salt, to taste.


How Can I Make a Low-Histamine Version?

You can definitely use apple juice to make a low-histamine version.  Apples and onions contain querrcetin, which contain an antihistamine property to help those on a low-histamine diet. Just avoid berry juices. However, some may tolerate blueberries.

  1. Is it possible to use something besides sugar (I’m allergic to cane and coconut sugars)? Honey seems like it might work, but how much (if at all) would you recommend as a substitute? Thank you so much!

    1. Gloria,

      Honey should work just fine. If it is too thick add more juice. If it is too thin, mix a little arrowroot or cornstarch with some cold juice or water and add it in, bring back to a boil, and stir until thick. You can also make the mixture thicker by cooking it longer.
