    Traditional curing methods that use sugar are still ok IMO. That's where sugar belongs - as a condiment to real food. Unless you are being uber-strict on sugar, which is also fine and has it's place.

    I do to be fair - a lot of bananas and dates more so than apples. Worth a try cutting out the fruit altogether and just having starches. Might try that, thanks.
