Stevia in Jelly

al b. darned | Jun 25, 2011 02:24 PM

I want to make sugar free grape jelly from my wild grapes for a diabetic friend. All of the recipes I have found use artificial sweeteners such as Nutrasweet, Sweet N Low, or Splenda. To me, these all have a nasty aftertaste. Stevia doesn't seem to have an aftertaste. My questions are:

Can I use stevia in a low/no sugar jelly recipe?

If so, is is a 1:1 substitution for other artificial sweeteners? That is 1 c sugar = 1 tsp stevia = 1 c Splenda.

Is stevia ok for diabetics?
