Is it alright to use honey or corn syrup for canning fruits?


Light corn syrup or mild flavored honey may replace as much as half the sugar called for in canning fruit. Do not use brown sugar, molasses, sorghum, or other strong flavored syrups. Their flavor overpowers the fruit flavor and may darken the fruit.
