    Dry the leaves, put them in a jar of vodka for 24-36 hours and make stevia extract
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    I had one once and put the leaves in iced tea - like mint! But I decided actual mint was better. (In case it wasn't clear, the stevia didn't taste like mint just a little sweet leaf).

    You can make your own stevia extract. There are instructions online.

    This is good cause then when people ask why you are putting vodka in your coffee you can just say it's homemade stevia.

    I just started making herbal tinctures and if the herbs don't cure you the shot of cheap vodka that comes with them will

    Big sugar & corn companies are scared, and I love it. They know sugar is bad, they've known it for years, they don't care. They know how to manipulate us with food that hits those sensors in our brains, our evolved brains. They have essentially hacked our brains.
    Frickin A, they are just unable to take NO for an answer. WE DON'T WANT YOUR DAMN FRANKEN CORN sweetener we don't care if you make it with fairy dust from Tinkerbell's ass. WE NO WANT.
    No means no Cargill Corn Milling. NO means NO! I have an old "rape whistle" my mom had when she was a teen....... I will use it Cargill Corn Milling, I will use it.

    I'm not sure I share the hate on this. Why not use a ubiquitous crop to produce the same chemicals? Either way you are refining some plant leaf down to a couple of chemicals, the same chemicals. You could argue big corn yadda yadda and on that I would agree, but in the end you do not need stevia anymore than you need corn syrup so it's not like they are putting an evil taint on some wholesome food.

    If I steep it in boiling water, will it make the water sweeter? I don't drink either alcohol or tea (I know, I know, but I have my reasons).
