    Yes I realised that xx my post was intended as a substitute for the coffee flavoured syrup you used, for those that don't have the actual syrup :)

    Or you could download evernote from the app store, its free, and use that. I cut and paste all my recipes into that, inc the piccys if any are included.

    I prefer liquid forms but will take solid stevia over everything else. I read somewhere that liquid sweeteners are better for you because less stuff is added to it but who really knows??!! X

    Hi Debmcgee, i make my own gravy using the meat juices and bits from the bottom of the roast tin,just add 1 pt of boiling water to them , keepit simmering until its reduced by half,add seasoning, then use guanthan gum powder ,mix it as directed and add to your gravy to thicken

    Can I freeze meat juices? I'd like sauce to add to the slow cooker as that's my preferred cooking method and my fussy kids seem to enjoy it too!!

    Read the other day that there was a test in America about people with diabetes. They did a study on Diabetics eating apple pie, when tested they could not understand why blood levels had come down. It was nothing to do with the apples or the pie, the fact was it was the cinnamon they put in it. Now they are saying diabetics should put cinnamon in there food, if it helps I will certainly try it. :)

    I add cinnamon to my coffee and Greek yoghurt because I love the taste. Not sure it's done much for my bg but one hopes

    Apple cider vinegar is also supposed to lower it. I tried to drink it but gave up as it was so vile!!!!

  16. I like cinnamon on Greek yogurt or quark. Apple pie and cinnamon? Not even with a barge pole!

    Freezing would stop the juices going rancid. I can't see why not.
    My mother used to save lard and cook with that as well.

    Thanks for sharing that. I'll start putting that in my morning chia pudding.

    I've also read that Tumeric is a natural anti-inflammatory. Can't hurt to put that in sauces for meat!

    I bought guanthan gum powder about 18 months ago, I can't remember what for!..... I really don't know what to use it on, so any info would be great.....do you think it's still good? I seem to remember that it was expensive. I'd appreciate your comments.
