garden candy cane

Hello blog.  It’s been a while.  I just popped in to share something seasonal from the garden.  The kids actually discovered this.

Last year I put in a stevia plant with high hopes of harvesting and drying the leaves in case the zombie apocalypse leaves us without sugar.  Of course I have not accomplished that task, mostly because the kids strip the plant bare.  It really is very sweet and, clearly, a hardy plant.  I don’t baby it at all.

So the other day the kids excitedly told me they had invented a candy cane and called me over to the veggie beds.  There they picked a stevia leaf, then picked a mint leaf, put them together and popped them into their mouths.  I had to try it.

YUM.  It’s like eating Christmas. But healthy.

You’re welcome.

    What an amazing recipe they created! Do they watch the cooking channels? Of course, it helps if you have V’s sweet tooth 😉
