Sugar (and sugar substitute)-free preserves?

Does anyone have tips? Besides just cooking fruit down - would I need to add citric or ascorbic acid for shelf life? Pectin for texture? I'm looking for shelf stability.
Thanks!

  1. You need to buy some Pomona's Pectin and go to town. I make very low sugar jam with it every summer. It uses calcium to create a jell, rather than sugar. Check out their website.
