>>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<<
Okay, you can make it with Splenda if you plan on using it right away.
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-
However, it does not provide the preservative properties of sugar, so proper canning techniques are essential to avoid spoilage.
Here is better explanation than I can offer:
I checked the sure-Jell site but didnt find anything similar.
You might want to call them directly to ask:
1-800-7-SPLENDA from Monday – Friday, 9:00am to 4:30 pm EST.
I checked on the Ball Canning site as well, just to see, but cant find anything on Splenda (or how long it will last), etc.
Sorry, no experience with this one!
