Out of the few food allergies/intolerances I have, cane sugar is the toughest to deal with. Not because I was addicted to sugar…But because sugar is in everything out there! In all the cakes, cookies & sweets of course, but in all the jams, jellies & butters as well (needless to say how happy I was to find fruit-sweetened jams such as St Dalfour)…Sugar is even hidden in sausages, prepared meals, sauces & condiments. I’ve found it in unsuspected places, therefore I read all the labels with great scrutiny.
Anyway, I found this upcoming food preserving book that sound rather promising: “Naturally Sweet Food in Jars: 100 Preserves Made with Coconut, Maple, Honey, and More” by Marissa MacCellan.
Yes, you read well: coconut sugar, maple syrup, honey, agave syrup and other fruit based sweeteners but NO CANE SUGAR! No artificial sweeteners either.
I think I’m gonna succumb to the temptation of pre-ordering that book…
