Stevia

by

Just a quick post today – everything looks great at the market and it’s just GORGEOUS out – not too hot, not too cold. Go shopping for your veg!

All the usual suspects are there – there’s a lot of variation in shelling pea prices – from $3/lb to $5/lb. Shop around.

Cunomo’s (I can never remember their farm name perfectly) has a little basket in front of their scale that says “Dried Stevia, $5”. Stevia is an herb with 200 times the sweetness of sugar. If you are diabetic, this is a great way to sweeten a pitcher of iced tea without resorting to chemicals, or paying outrageous amounts for agave syrup. And local!

Have a marvelous weekend!
