"Good in some ways but not in others."
31 July 2012
Being diabetic and hating peal, I contacted Lakeland as to whether or not you could substitute the sugar element for granulated sweetener instead. They couldn't say for sure so I thought I'd give it a go.Well, you can ! I used a sweetener and did indeed make marmalade ! However, this kit does NOT make 6lbs of marmalade, more like half the amount ! That was v. disappointing as also purchased the jars and half of them weren' needed.Consistency of marmalade is a little runnier too but that could be down to the sweetener, still thick enough to stay on toast though! Not sure if I'd use again as a bit costly.
A note from the team
Thanks for placing your review and trying the sweetener. We've checked and when the sweetener is used it will reduce in the end amount. It's also recommended to keep the marmalade in the fridge and consume within a month.
