    What can I use if I can’t have honey? Would the sweetener swerve work?

      Hi Donna, Great question! We’re not familiar with Swerve. We recommend maple syrup if you’re not able to do honey. Let us know if you try it and what you think. XO, J&J

    Can I use Stevia for sweetener? I have to be low carb for a medical condition

      Hi Jane, Yes, stevia should work but you’ll want to mix well especially if it’s the liquid stevia since it will absorb fast. XO, J&J

    I added little bit of stevia to give more sweet/sour flavor. Really good.
