My thanks to Burra on her extracts report!
My son is keen on growing our own stevia. Thus far, all the processed stuff I have tried consistently gives me a headache.
He is convinced this is due to the processing, but he is leaning on a " nature good, artifice bad" way of thinking.
Still, the glycerin extract sounds promising,as does the alcohol based one.
Any concern over botulism in the glycerin? An extreme worry perhaps, but we are warned about garlic in oil being a possible source....

My understanding is that botulism requires anaerobic dark conditions. Therefor use a tall thin glass container and rotate it in the sun after each shake so that the ultra violet counters the anaerobic condition.
