~ Real Stevia ~


This is a real stevia plant which was from my mothers garden.


I dehydrated the leaves for about six hours and they became very crispy so I placed them in the coffee bean grinder.


There wasn't enough leaves to blend completely, but i was astonished how intense the flavor was. Dehydrated foods become more flavorful.


I poured the ground leaves in a tiny bottle and placed it in the fridge to keep for my special granola bars i make for my son.

Its  late October very chilly and for the first time took my shoes off and walk on the chilly ground for half an hour to ground myself. I enjoyed the feeling of the crisp leaves underneath my feet and the dew on the grass....
