Preserving Food Safely - 01600896


A variety of fruit spreads may be made that are
tasteful, yet lower in sugars and calories than regular jams
and jellies. Gelatin may be used as a thickening agent, as
indicated in two recipes in the data base. Sweet fruits,
apple juice, spices and/or liquid aspartame (a low-calorie
nutritive sweetener) are used to provide the sweet flavor of
the fruit spreads. When gelatin is used in the recipe, the
jars of spread should not be processed. They should be
refrigerated and used within 4 weeks. Use the keyword
SPREADS to obtain directions for making spreads.
