Recently I found a bag of stevia leaves....is this the same as the liquid or powder form??
do i use it to sweeten things by soaking it in hot water?? any ideas? suggestion?
I live in south america, it doesn't have any information on the bag other than the name and that its a natural sweetener. I've asked some of the locals and they had never heard/seen it.
I have an aversion to honey, and coconut doesn't seem to agree with me, so of course to find an actual natural sweetener in its natural form is appealing!
anyone ever use it in this form?

Yes, this whole leaf form is much preferred to processed stevia extracts (in my opinion).
To use the whole leaf, I just mix it with other tea or herbs to make a sweetened beverage. A little goes a long way.
You can put a pinch into a smoothie because it will get all blended up, you won't know there is dry leaf in there. You could also place some in a tea bag or tea ball to infuse butter or cream, etc before making a dessert with that ingredient.
