What an amazing plant, Stevia. I love to hand people a leaf straight off of the plant to taste. They are always surprised. It is so sweet. This is the leaf here. You can use it to sweeten your drinks or baked goods. Just steep it in some water and use the sweeten water or put the leaves in a tea ball or infuser. It is much sweeter than sugar so it requires much less.
You can use the stevia leaves to make a syrup which will last in your fridge for a few weeks.
An extract can be made using the leaves too and an alcohol based extract has a much longer shelf life.
3-4 teaspoons of dried green stevia is roughly equivalent to one cup of refined sugar for sweetening.
