my swami fruits are not that different from GTD2, but are hrd to eat. Apricots, cranberries, nectarines. Yum, but I cannot find cranberries w/out sweetener, and that goes for apricots too. (Maybe I can eat  4 apricots a yr. in season.) Love nectarines, but season gone. I have a lovely mason jar of gorgeous apricots that my son canned fresh from his tree, but they are loaded with sugar. Ideas? (I also have pineapple which I cn get all yr and love)
I resort to apples which are bl. dots.

Get yourself a dehydrator and when the fruits are in season, buy them in bulk and dry them yourself and freeze them.  You will have a longer supply.  Or bottle them yourself with healthier alternatives to preserving.  Google on that.  BTW, your options sound like mine, recent updates to my Swami moved my dates to neutral and placed apricots as SFs.  Still working on availability of these options, been thinking about doing this for a few days.  

A bit of hard work, need to find suitable time and get organize for it, but I think it maybe worth a try, given the alternatives ...

You might have to encourage the members to help you come up with recipes for fresh or frozen unsweetened cranberries, using your own compliant sweeteners.

Fresh cranberries are available now. You can freeze them if you do not have a dehydrator.

A few cranberry recipes:

Good ideas. I was thinking...maybe some kind of a relish of these fruits, sweetened, or not, with stevia. Because I suspect the reason apples are bl. dot is simply glycemic index, so.....sweetened fruit would be counterproductive...(unless with stevia, a diamond).

Here in NM we have a chain called Natural Grocers, and they sell dried cranberries sweetened with apple juice. They are more tart than the sugar sweetened varieties, but I like them anyway.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Those are the only 3 fruits you can have?

Cranberries are coming out of our ears up here right now.  I'm surprised you can't get them down there.  

Nectarines are gone for us until next summer.  But I have plenty of other choices.  I do like them a lot though.
