I just found this really informative site, filled with FAQs about canning.

http://www.uga.edu/nchfp/questions/FAQ_canning.html#15.

Right of the top it answers questions on the subject most talked about yesterday…Is it safe to can fruits without sugar?
Yes. Sugar is added to improve flavor, help stabilize color, and retain the shape of the fruit. It is not added as a preservative.

Dashing out for an early morning walk. Will continue later.
