    I found a recipe that calls for a teaspoon of antioxidant crystals?

    Can't seem to find this product anywhere. Is there an alternate name for it among canners?

    A banana strawberry jam. It apparently supposed to prevent the banana from turning colors.

    I wonder if Fruit Fresh would work. Hmmmm. I have to look for that at the Mennonite place I shop at. I image that would be hard to find. Maybe someone else has heard of it.

    That's what I've always used, was just wondering if there was some sort of new-fangled awesomeness I was missing out on.

    I'll second that it's just Vitamin C. Silly recipe writers trying to get all fancy...
