Stevia fail

I just learned the hard way that you can't bake with Stevia.

Never in my life have I had such a violent reaction to something being in my mouth. I tried substituting Stevia for sugar in a recipe and please take me on my word: IT. WAS. VILE. Bitter and metallic and sour are the tastes that erupted in my mouth when I took a bite of the desert I'd made. I immediately spat it right back into the dish, something I've never done before...I've been known to be a pretty finicky eater, and used to reject most every new thing I tried, but I'd usually finish the first bite and refuse more. So you can imagine just how horrible this really tasted.

Back to the drawing board!

  1. Stevia is not one of my favorite sweetners and it by no means compares to real sugar......but it is the only sweetner I can use that does not feed candida. They say xylitol does not feed candida either.

    Anyway, like it or not....I use stevia.
