Making Pasta From Local Grains at Ellis Hollow

Mo Barger replied to Jennifer Maffett's discussion Sugar Alternatives in the group Berries!
"I never heard of it being used in jams. I guess it would depend on the fruit used and the kind of pectin (if you use it). I have used honey in some jams - especially grape - where the fruit's natural pectin can be used and the sweetener is…"
