tentaclesandteacups replied to your post: I love using Stevia in place of sugars & Agave (which is super easy to grow yourself- it’s easy to uproot an offshoot when you see them in a garden! My whole garden is sprouted stolen offcuts XD) It’s handy to have when the honey is too expensive ♥

Oooh, my parents use Stevia and coconut sugar. While I’ve had both, I tried the latter during a visit one time—super awesome. 

And honey. I took that stuff for granted when I worked at a coffee shop. Customers would empty out 85% of the bottle as ask for another and then I’d just combine the dregs over and 8 hour shift and take those home. Haaa. That was the life. 

How do you extract the agave nectar? Do you get a decent yield from your garden?
