Uses in the kitchen: 👨🏻🍳 👩🏻🍳 🍪
Stevia is an excellent sweetener. For this purpose, the fresh leaves of the plant are not very useful, but they can be chewed for a few minutes to quench the "desire for sweet 🍰 🎂 ”that attacks us every now and then.
The real "treasure of sweetness" consists of the dried leaves of stevia: these, once shredded, are very useful for sweetening cold or hot drinks, but also for the preparation of desserts with and without cooking
