I'm looking for things to do with all the peppers I've picked up at the farmer's market, but can't seem to find any recipes without white sugar. I have banana peppers right now, but would love recipes using other peppers too or even green beans, if you have them! Thanks! :)

Fruit + Pectin/Gelatin + Water/Wine/Liquor + Erythritol/Stevia + Cook = Low carb jelly.

@Rawria

Mark Bittman has a good recipe for pickles that uses salt and dill, no vinegar or white sugar. I tried it and it was delicious. Can be used for cucumbers or other veggies.

I've had good results using frozen pureed fruit (you can buy it in packs at Whole Foods) or frozen fruit concentrate in place of sugar in a lot of recipes. I substitute 1/3 cup frozen pineapple puree or 1/4 cup frozen pineapple concentrate in a recipe for each 1/2 cup sugar.

What about wild fermenting them with rock salt, you can add other vegetables/fruits inside also.

Why don't you use gelatin, vegetables, peppers and salt ? Make your own recipe, I'd try that.

google nukazuke or tsukemono. Nuka is delicious, if you are willing to get the culture up to speed. No sugar, and the rice bran does add some flavor and nutrients of its own (very mineral rich).

But jelly has sugar in it.

You can make pickles without sugar, but generally again, sugar is in the cure.

Paleo folks would say use some weird non-white sugar, but chemically, they're the same. Or honey, but it'll taste like honey.
