That makes an Asian style mustard, hot, like in a Chinese restaurant. For other flavors I add whatever spice I feel like tasting. Vinegar also is an ingredient of mustards. I use apple cider vinegar instead of white vinegar. White vinegar can be a petroleum product and it isn't required to add that fact to a label. Even if it isn't a petroleum product it is usually made with corn, which is verboten for me as well.
      Hi Periquin - thanks for the clarification. I would hate for someone reading this to think that they can't eat mustard. Where I get in to trouble, is that a lot of store mustard has paprika in it! Enough to cause me problems. I didn't think about making my own - it's a good idea.

      Thanks!

        This is sort of an expansion of the mango salsa, but I think this would be great - gotta leave out the peppers and tomatoes though.

          I have been avoiding artichokes and blueberries because I read they have high levels of solanine which is suspected to be the problematic compound in nightshades. Anyone else doing this? Do you find it matters?

            Bushrat: hot things---ginger, garlic, mustard, radish (wasabi)\
            chili substitute--not perfect, but try chutney based things, especially with extra ginger. Experiment some till you find the taste you want.

            About blueberries-- I couldn't find anything conclusive about any hazard from blueberries. Some sites I visited list blueberries artichokes, okra,apples, and more as containing solanine, but they didn't rate them as having as severe an affect as the nightshades. I need to experiment some. I consume green apples and blueberries. They are nearly the only fruits I eat regularly on an anti fungal diet that I follow. Okra and artichokes are staples for me too. I do need to do some experimenting. I hope that the blueberries and apples don't bother me.

            I don't know if I should be happy or not learning about solanine and blueberries. Life goes on!

              Apples! I had no idea. I grew up on an apple farm. I've never gone more than 3 days without an apple in my whole life. I will have to leave them out for a while and see what happens. Oy Vey....it's always something

                I'm so glad this thread is still alive! I NEED it!!

                Jammies, I've read that about blueberries (but not apples!!) I would think if you cut them out for a week or two and then tried them again while maintaining a strict nightshade free diet, you'd be able to see if they were really impacting you... Just a thought!

                Thanks for the mustard ideas periquin!! I tried making my own once and the results were...bleh. I have found a dijon with few ingredients that tastes good and has NO nightshades (yay!) so I'll prob. stick with that. (Easy :-)

                Bushrat--I've seen cumin used as the major spice to replace hot things in nightshade free recipes. Also, black pepper is NOT a nightshade and fine to use in ample quantities. (THIS is my biggest challenge--I love peppers as a seasoning/spice...)

                Nightshade free chili (I googled, but have not tried it): http://www.eatingwithfoodallergies.c...ree-chili.html


                I found my joints were still aching a bit yesterday, and last night I got very little sleep for me (5.5 hours--I usually get 8) and my hips are just aching! I read that in another thread about folks' joints hurting from lack of sleep. I've noticed its true for me as well. May be lingering from my nightshade consumption as well...? More motivation to avoid avoid avoid!!

                I'm craving mango salsa on chicken or fish...mmmm...

                  Yesterday I ate ketchup. I just wasn't thinking... I didn't even realize it, but I got halfway through my meal and realized I was eating it.....of course ketchup = tomatoes!!! DUMB. So last night/this morning I start dreaming about having to take all these people I know to the hospital, the first person with knee pain, the second with back pain....etc.

                  I woke up at about 4 in the morning....in pain. I am still having swelling and pain. Enough that I had to limp today. I wonder how many times I am going to have to learn this lesson I have a very long flight tomorrow evening. I sincerely hope I am better by then.

                  Nightshade are not my friend.

                    Sorry jammies. YIKES. I can (now) totally empathize. I hope you are feeling better really soon.

                      It seems that if one does without something like nightshades, and then eats it as a challenge, the reaction is really intense, much more than it was when having the same thing most of the time. It surely does show where the trouble lies, though.

                      If someone is only slightly sensitive to nightshades and wants to eat potatoes, the solanine is concentrated just under the skin, so peeling the potatoes should get rid of a lot.

                      Has any of the literature about nightshades mentioned that the Ayurvedic herb ashwagandha is a nightshade? Any idea what alkaloids are in there? It's so good in so many ways. it would be a shame to have to avoid it.

                        Substitute for curry powder, plus a lot of discussion on nightshades w/ some links:
                        http://board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=23158
                        Dr. G's Nightshade-Free Curry Powder:

                        Equal parts of turmeric powder, ground coriander seed, and ground cumin.

                        Combine in an air-tight jar and shake to mix. Other addition options (add less of these!) include mustard powder, ginger powder, garlic powder, and fresh ground black pepper.
                        Sounds like a lot of turmeric to me...

                        I'm on the search for nightshade (and dairy) free curries, along with any other Indian and Thai recipes (any recs appreciated!!)

                          Nightshade and SUGAR* free ketchup recipe (there is a pasta sauce recipe at the bottom as well ): http://www.craigsams.com/pages/nomato.html
                          Nomato Ketchup recipe

                          435g Carrot puree (boil carrots and puree very fine)
                          30g lemon juice
                          200g Apple conc 70 (or 130g sugar and an extra 50ml water)
                          25g Water
                          20 g Beetroot juice (or to get the shade of red you're after)
                          15g salt
                          7g onion powder (optional)
                          2g Ketchup spice



                          KETCHUP SPICE MIX

                          18g cinnamon
                          17g garlic powder
                          5g kelp powder (optional)
                          4g ground nutmeg
                          3g white pepper
                          3g clove powder

                          Or, roughly

                          2 tsp cinnamon
                          2 tsp garlic powder
                          1/2 tsp nutmeg
                          1/2 tsp white pepper
                          1/2 tsp clove powder

                          For Baked Beans: Use precooked tinned haricot beans (from any health food store) and add ready made ketchup. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 150
                          For Pasta Sauce: Take the basic mix, without the ketchup spice and onion powder. Saute onions and garlic and vegetables of your choice and cover in the basic puree mixture and add herbs and seasoning to taste

                          A vegetarian bouillon powder (Marigold brand or Kallo) will enhance the flavour
                          Will share when/if I try it out!


                          ETA: Just realized the 'apple concentrate' is in there--so its not sugar free...May still be a good base for ketchup or other sauce though even w/out the sugar...
