Preserving
« on: May 24, 2010, 22:30 »
Hello, I'm new here and enjoying reading all the posts. :wacko: :unsure:  I'd really like to start preserving some of the fruit and vegetables I'm growing this year.  I just wondered if I can change the sugar that's in a lot of the recipes for splenda or another sugar substitute, or if it needs to be the real thing?  Thanks for any help...

Can't remember the answer off the top of my head but if you need a reference book, Val H on here has written an excellent one, and it seems to cover the question

P.S. Welcome to the site
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Hello and welcome to the site. I think it is possible but it would be a short shelf life in the fridge so not really preserving. :)

I have diabetic friends who use no-sugar pectin as well as Splenda as needed, but I don't have their recipes. Besides Val's great recipes, try the Splenda site for more info:

dont forget Bob Flowerdew! His 'Grow your own Eat your own' is full of info on preserving foodstuffs. Try your local library,they may have a copy,or look at e-bay you will get it there fairly cheap :D
