War Time Sweeteners
MERICA has several excellent war time sweet
eners that will be used largely during the
shortage in the sugar supply.
S.They are maple sugar, syrups, honey and
molasses and may be used in preparing des
serts and other dishes requiring sweetening.
When a cup of syrup or honey is used
to replace a cup of sugar the liquid in the
recipes should be decreased one-fourth.
d One-third of a cupful of sugar is equivalent
to one-third of a cup of honey, about one
half cup of syrup and about one-half cup of corn sugar.
One-fourth of a cup of sugar is equal to about one-half
cup of syrup or one-third cup of corn sugar. One table
spoon of sugar is equal to one tablespoon of honey, about
one and one-half tablespoons of syrup and one and one
third tablespoons of corn sugar.
Sugar may be saved by the use of raisins, dates, figs,
dried pears and fruit pastes used on the breakfast cereals.
Fruit marmalades, butters and jellies should be used
to take the place of the ordinary sweetening at a meal -and
not as accessories to it. Fruits may be preserved without
sugar. It may be added when sugar is more plentiful.

If sugar is used one-half of the amount may be replaced

Drying is a means of preserving (without sugar) ap
ples, cherries, strawberries and black caps.
When ready to use they may have added the needed
sugar in the form of a syrup. When sugar is more plentiful
fruit juices may be made into jellies or may be used as
cruit juices with or without sugar, as beverages, fruit
gelatins and frozen desserts.
Fresh fruits supply the place of sugar in the diet. They
should be used freely. Desserts where sugar is scarce
may be made of gelatins, junkets, custards, )uddings and
