30 times sweeter than sugar, yet non-caloric!
Are you trying to avoid sugar but don’t like artificial sweeteners? The answer is Stevia! This easy-to-grow, tender perennial herb can be used fresh, dried, powdered, or as a liquid to sweeten foods and beverages. It’s even heat-stable, so it’s great for cooking! Stevia, also called Sweet Leaf, Sugar Leaf, Sweet Honey Leaf, and Rebiana, is very high-yielding, producing up to a 1/2-lb of dried leaf from one plant! Stevia is also a superb and attractive houseplant — just plant the seeds in your favorite container, set it in a sunny spot, and watch it grow!
