                         Rice syrup
     The amount of sweetener called for in a recipe may
   be altered to suit your own taste. if you like less
   sweetener, add less. A recipe can be made sweetener by
   reducing the amount of flour by about 1/4-1/2 cup and
   adding the same amount of granulated or powdered
   sweetener. Maple syrup or other sweetener may be
   substituted for honey in most recipes from other books.
     Fruit concentrates may be used in place of honey or
   maple syrup, in about equal proportions.
     Regular fruit juice may be used as a sole sweetening
   agent in some recipes, with small variations in
   flavour. For example, if a recipe calls for 2 cups
   maple syrup and 1 1/2 cups nut milk, use 3 1/2 cups of
   a thick variety of peach or pear juice (other fruit
   juices are not sweet or as light coloured.) There will
   be a slight change in flavour. If a recipe using only
   fruit juice is not sweet enough, substitute 1/2 cup or
   so of one of the recipe’s dry ingredients (like flour)
   with the same amount of natural powdered or granulated
     When a recipe calls for a liquid sweetener, it is
   best to use maple syrup, fruit concentrate or natural
   liquid sweetener for the best flavour. if any other
   liquid sweeteners are used, the amount of sweetening
   must be increased. Some sweeteners, like molasses or
   sorghum, can greatly change the flavour of the recipe
   and must be experimented with.”
