Home Food Preservation

Can I use Stevia for canning?

Featured Question

My husband is now a type 2 diabetic. I cannot have artificial sweeteners. I would like to find a way to can fruit without doing it one way for him and a different way for me. I've been using Stevia with fruit I am putting up in the freezer. Can I also use Stevia instead of sugar with the fruit I am canning?
