Default Camden ?

I made a christmas cider and my wife wants it still but a little sweeter. If i add the camden before i bottle and add some frozen juice to sweeten would this work or do need to go out and get some sorbate also?

I think cam"P"den is for killing nasties and wild yeasts from fruit.

You want potassium sorbate to halt further fermentation prior to backsweetening.
