Tips
* or 18 packets Truvia™ natural sweetener

**Use fresh or frozen berries, unsweetened

To make fruit "preserves" put frozen fruit in sauce pan with thickening agent and heat gently, crushing the berries somewhat. Add water if necessary to make two cups total. For fresh fruit, mix some of the cold water with cornstarch or tapioca starch (particularly with high acid fruit like cherries) before heating. Cook until thickened like preserves.

Tapioca starch - take INSTANT tapioca and grind in spice/coffee grinder.

Cornstarch or Tapioca 1 Tbl thickens 1 cup liquid, Do not excessively stir or heat as thickeners will break down.

If using Tapioca starch, mix all ingredients and let sit for 15 minutes before cooking.
