Converting Your Recipes to Agave Nectar:
Agave Nectar is sweeter than sugar, so you can use less!
1. Substitute 2/3 cup agave nectar per 1 cup sugar.
2. Compensate for the moisture in the agave nectar by reducing other liquids added by 1 FL OZ per 2/3 cup agave used. You can also estimate the moisture to be approx. 20% of the agave used.
3. To avoid overbrowning, oven temperature should be reduced by 25 degrees F and baking time increased by about 6%.
This general guide should be suitable for most recipes, but don’t be afraid to tweak it to suit your personal taste.
