Denise, I will say next time, try taking 1 cup of sugar away, put 4 1/2 cup (Gosh, it is still a lot). Then, when you make it again, take 1/2 a cup away (that would be 1 cup of sugar per jar with that receipe). Then, take a 1/4 cup away the next batch, and continue for the future batches. Once it hit the point they start noticing and complaining, you add 1/4 cup back. You would have trained theirs tastebuds and find a receipe with the least tolerable sugar (maybe you need to add chia gel or aloe vera or more water and pectin to increase the volume a bit for the reduced sugar).
