A New Venture

Hubby's new adventure is growing stevia. Today he harvested a good bit from the garden and is drying it in the dehydrator. Next he will turn it into a powder then steep in hot water to create a sweet mixture as pictured below. Still working through the kinks of how long to steep and how much powder to use. Currently adding to tea, etc. for sweetness. My vote is still out on if I even like it. From so many years of using white sugar it will be hard to change my taste buds, but I am working at it.

That's so cool! I didn't know you could do that. I didn't like the stevia when I tried it, but I've been trying to work up the nerve to try it again. I know so many people do love it, so...Fun project.
