Less or No-Sugar-Needed Recipes:
You could use a no-sugar needed pectin, such as Mrs. WagesLite Home Jell Fruit Pectin, Ball No-Sugar Needed Pectin or Sure-Jell.
With these no sugar is required at all.
The package inserts with these pectins give instructions on when to add the sugar substitutes (usually after all the cooking, right before filling the jars).
