Quick Answers



Can fruit be canned with artificial sweeteners?

Canning with artificial sweeteners or sugar substitutes is not advised. They may lose some of their sweetening power when heated and may become bitter. Can fruit in water or unsweetened juice and add the sugar substitute when serving.
