Stevia in bloom. An extract can be done by combining the leaves with a pure USP grain alcohol for 24 hours, straining, adding some water, then cooking on a very low heat to burn off the alcohol. The leaves can probably be pulverized in the food processor and used in place of sugar too. Thought I'd give it a try.
I like to use alternatives medicine or natural food substitutes whenever it does not entail hours upon hours of preparation. I'm not into standing for hours with a mortar and pestle; so if it is fairly easy, I'll give it a try. Next up will be fresh pesto from the tens of basil plants that seeded last year. :D
Until next time, God bless.
