    I love Pepper Jelly. I buy a ton of it at my local farmers market and would love to make my own. I was wondering if you knew if you can make it with splenda instead of sugar? Thanks. Jen

    <SPAN class="625171321-02062008">Okay, you can make it with Splenda if you plan on using it right away.
    <SPAN class="625171321-02062008">
    <SPAN class="625171321-02062008">With proper canning techniques, SPLENDA(R) Granular can be successfully used in place of sugar. SPLENDA(R) Granular No Calorie Sweetener is heat stable and can be used as a sweetener in canning and in making jams and jellies-
