How can I reduce sugar in a brown sugar syrup? It tastes too sweet, but I am not sure how to reduce the sweetness and still keep the same consistency. I made it from recipes I found on line, but really need it to be less sweet.
Add some citrus juice.
Start small as it can go sour fast. A drop or two of lemon or orange or lime juice should work.
Taste literally after each drop, and by drop I mean an eye dropper drop.
Thank you so much...I believe this will work! :)
Thank you so much...I believe it will work and I will go slowly as I think I overdid the vanilla a bit:)
Hope I turns around for you!
I added too much sugar while cooking turnip greens. Is there any way to tone the sugar taste down? Sort of like you do when you add a potato if you've added too much salt.

I suggest to add more water to them let boil a few minutes then drain. If you want more water add more. I like bread in it.
Vinegar would counteract the sugar to make sweet & sour greens.
Was afraid to add vinegar so went with the "add more water" route. It worked! I drained them, added more water and boiled the fool out of them for about 5 min, then drained again. Thank you so much. I had too much cooked to just throw away.
It's so much healthier to just steam those greens and don't add sugar. Just use a little butter, salt & pepper on them when you eat them (light on the butter). They are loaded with iron and so good for you.
I was afraid to add vinegar also, so I just drained and added new water boiled for 5 mins. Then drained and added new water again with salt and garlic powder boiled for 20 minutes. They are delicious. Thanks.

Used a Brunswick stew recipe that called for brown sugar. With tomatoes, made way too sweet. Checked your site to see how to tone it down. Used couple of spoons of white vinegar and lemon juice. Seems to help. Will let you know when I serve it tonight.
