I have checked out a dozen home preserving books from the library because I want to make chutney, jam, and marmalade. However, all of the recipes rely heavily on sugar to preserve and I am trying to cut sugar from my diet.
I am not so concerned with being able to can large quantities, so can I just omit the sugar and make refrigerator chutney, jam, and marmalade?
Or, can I use a natural sweetener like honey or maple syrup instead?
Does anyone have any good recipes for chutney, jam, or marmalade without refined sugars?
