Hi everyone!!
I grew some stevia last year, to see if it was easy to grow, and if we would like it. We dried the leaves and used them in coffee, on oatmeal, etc. We loved it.
The plants grew really well, and our family was happy to find a more organic based sugar substitute, other than artificial sweeteners.
But now I see, there is some contaversy surrounding stevia. Can anyone out there give me some facts on stevia and it's safety?
I've included a link for anyone who may not be familiar with this plant:

Thanks,
Chickadee
