Sugar Bush

We went to Fulton's pancake house and sugar bush today - they serve gluten-free pancakes! They have a dedicated grill at the back, and make them on demand. They had the ingredients list for the beans and it seemed gluten-free to me (the sausages weren't). Nice installation with lots of stuff to keep the kids busy (slides, face painting). We recommend it!

"We" did some research this week on spices - we were looking particularly at ground spices such as ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. We found the following info by contacting the manufacturers:

- No-name brand spices: these are made on lines that also see gluten on them. So not guaranteed gluten-free.

-McCormick's: (from their website, under "contact us")
"None of our single ingredient spices and herbs contain gluten. In addition, all of our extracts, including Pure Vanilla, are gluten-free. Some of our products do contain gluten. When WHEAT is the source, it will always be called out within the ingredient statement, and listed in bold.
We do not maintain a list of gluten-free products, as our formulas change from time to time."

We found the McCormick spices at Superstore.
