Baking with applesauce - Page 2
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I totally agree. The only recipe I have ever used olive oil in while baking was an Italian torte recipe. The torte had a very strong olive oil flavor and was more savory than sweet. Applesauce is a very good substitute in baked items especially for diabetics. I have used applesauce as a substitute many times but you have to be careful because it has a tendency to make baked items really moist and sometimes gummy. I would definitley use canola oil if you are hesitant with trying out new recipes.
This has been most informative. I took enough chemistry to understand what Kimmie was passing on, and it scares me to use it again. Back to corn oil for me.
And Monsanto is prominently featured in a food documentary a few years back (can't remember the name). It was scary to see what tactics they use to protect their patents on all their seeds. Soya included. Most of your soybeans grown domestically are from genetically modified seeds that are engineered to resist Roundup as well, and that means they spray the fields with poison. Yummy.
Big corporations are trying to kill us at the expense of their bottom line. That's what I think.
I use olive oil all the time when I make muffins, rolls,quick breads and they taste delicious.
The only strong flavored oil I don't use is flax oil. Its flavor is too strong. Canola and other vegetable oils may be GMO contaminated. I also use pure maple syrup instead of white sugar in my baking.. Amount is usually cup for cup. I am a diet controlled diabetic and find maple syrup doe not affect my blood sugar adversely.
Now this is from GMO facts (http://canola.okstate.edu/gmofacts/index.htm)
I am a nurse and realize the importance of knowing the effect of what we put in our bodies is. Unfortunately most of the dietitians I have spoken with are not well informed and often suggest harmful things like artificial sweeteners and artificial fats to their clients.
I will pray Keith Scott, that you fully recover and heal from your heart attack. Make sure you are exercising within your limits (Staying in motion keeps you in motion) because a sick heart or sick body can recover with the healing of God and how well you care for your temple. "By his stripes we are healed" in the Bible: Isaiah 53:4-5".
