Stevia Plant – Sugar Substitute
Not sure if I mentioned that I am growing a Stevia plant. I haven’t particularly liked the stevia substitutes that I have tried. The licorice type after taste is not good for me but I think that in time I can get used to it. I got to thinking that perhaps the dried or steeped leaves of the plant may taste differently than commercial substitutes. The plant is growing nicely and the internet tells me that I can dry and store the leaves and or make an extract or tincture. I think first I am going to boil some tea and make iced tea with fresh mint and stevia leaves. We’ll see how that works.
