  1. Thx for the comment. Yes, we feel the same about sugar but its a must
    include in order to preserve. Can you give a bit more detail about ‘stevia’
    as we have not heard of this before and it sounds interesting. Also, do you
    have a recipe for your spruce juice as we have a few trees on our land. Do
    you use a Norwegian pine recipe (using young green shoots) for a cough
    medicine? We made some for the first time this year…

  2. Stevia is a genus of about 240 species of herbs and shrubs in the sunflower
    family (Asteraceae), native to subtropical and tropical regions from
    western North America to South America. The species Stevia rebaudiana,
    commonly known as sweetleaf, sweet leaf, sugarleaf, or simply stevia, is
    widely grown for its sweet leaves. As a sweetener and sugar substitute,
    stevia’s taste has a slower onset and longer duration than that of sugar.

  3. That looks very good. I made a very nice jelly last year from Elder Berries
    and Crab Apples.
