    **You can find commercial fruit sweeteners, ordinarily a combination of concentrated peach & pear juices and unsweetened pineapple syrup, in health food stores, gourmet food stores and large grocery outlets. It tastes 1-1/2 to 2 times sweeter than refined sugar. You can also make your own fruit sweetener. For example, if a recipe calls for 1/2 cup fruit sweetener, you can substitute 1/4 cup concentrated apple juice + 1/4 cup granulated fructose.


  1. Cream fruit sweetener and Apple butter. Beat in egg. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Blend into creamed mixture.
  2. Fold in apples and nuts. Pour into an 8 x 8-inch pan which has been sprayed with non-stick coating. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 325 degrees.
