My new favorite liquid sweetener, especially for fruit that's too hard or tasteless (peaches, nectarines, mangoes ~ winter strawberries and melons). It isn't grainy like sugar or Splenda, and the fruit doesn't get mushy. Great substitute for honey or corn syrup. ** In the fruit salad above, I just cut up peaches, nectarines and mangoes and drizzled about 1 tsp. light agave nectar over them; mixed it up gently. After about 1/2 hour, they were softer and sweeter. (60 calories per TB=15 calories per tsp)
I always buy LIGHT agave nectar because it isn't as sweet as regular strength (which is more like corn syrup). A big bottle of it costs less than $6 and is either on the baking aisle near the other sugar products, or near the honey and corn syrup.
