The Ultimate Stevia Guide

 Stevia Plant

If you’re looking for tons of information about stevia, look no further!

Our neighbors first introduced us to the stevia plant.  I immediately became OBSESSED!  The leaves tasted super sweet & I could grow this amazing plant in my yard!  Count me in!  I bought 3 plants & was ready to go…

Except I didn’t really know anything about stevia.  How was I supposed to cook with it?  How could I preserve it?  What exactly is this plant that I now have 3 of?  I hit up Pinterest for all the answers & it didn’t disappoint.

I found out that Stevia is 300 times sweeter than sugar.  It has no calories or carbohydrates.  It’s just a sweet little plant!

Even though I bought my plants from a greenhouse, there are tons of tips of starting stevia plants from seeds.  I might go that route for next year’s planting season.  But, I could also bring my plants inside for the winter!

For preserving, I found several links on creating both liquid extract & dried stevia.  A lot of the stevia extract recipes used alcohol that is boiled out, but I found this recipe that uses just water.
