Hand picked, air dried SWEET Stevia Leaves. A non-nutritive supplement with a taste up to 30 times sweeter than sugar!
Your order is protected with the LocalHarvest money back guarantee.
Our Stevia is naturally grown in our own garden. Contains the LEAVES ONLY (not a bag of chopped up plant) packed in resealable plastic bags. No sticks or stems!
The 1/4 oz package of leaves equals approx 1/2 - 3/4 cup loosely packed dry measure. Prefer Green Stevia Powder? Order 1/4 oz Ground Leaves. Just remember, unprocessed Stevia does not dissolve in liquid (see Making Extract info below.)
Use dried Stevia Leaves to sweeten your cup of tea by adding a pinch or so to your tea ball.
You can make a water based Stevia Extract by combining 1/4 oz dried whole or crushed Stevia leaves or 1/4 oz ground leaves with 1 cup of boiling distilled water. Allow to stand overnight, strain, then store in the refrigerator.
You can also make an alcohol based extract using pure USP grain alcohol (or Brandy or Scotch.) Combine the dried whole, crushed or ground Stevia leaves with the alcohol and allow the mixture stand for 24 hours. Strain & then dilute to taste using distilled water. The alcohol content itself can be reduced by very slowly heating (not boiling) the extract & allowing the alcohol to evaporate off.
Water extracts will not be a sweet as the alcohol extracts. Either liquid extract can be cooked down & concentrated into a syrup. Use a dropper to measure out the desired amount of product for either type of extract.
