I have to watch my sugar intake. Is there anything out there that can be substituted for sugar to make a simple syrup? Splenda? Thanks
What about Agave nectar. It is also glucose-fructose, but tastes much sweeter so you can reduce substantially (I'd start with about 1/2 the measure of what the recipe calls for in sugar)
Here's some info:
Agave is a good substitute. If you wanted to use Splenda, I'd use 1/2 cup of the Splenda-sugar blend to one cup of water called for in the recipe.
