Mix fruit pectin in a separate small bowl with 1/2 of cup of the sugar.

    I can't see what difference it would make, But I'm not sure how much splenda you would have to put in maybe a little and taste it then add more until it is sweet enough? I think 3 cups of splenda would make it really really sweet This would be interesting to find out I'm not sure who to ask :-)
