I used to hate Stevia...

It tasted bitter and off to me..

...but then I found the liquid Stevia made by TJ, and now I'm a fan! I was wondering if anyone know of any liquid syrups (like Torani's) that use Stevia as the sweetener?

Hi Gingerann ;-)

I don't know of any commercial syrups using Stevia but like to make my own Stevia syrups as described in this thread;

Liquid Stevia ;-)

They are excellent, especially in ice creams!!!

I feel the same way you do. But, I have never tried the liquid. Will do this.

Nature's Flavors has syrups sweetened with an erythritol stevia combo. I've only tried two, caramel and brown sugar and thought they tasted good but alike. Wish I had bought vanilla.

Do you have any idea what the concentration of water should be with the natural stevia plant? or how to make an extract from the plant and then add the water?

Powdered Stevias bug me, by and large. I use liquid Stevias, though my favorite isn't one available through Netrition. Of their catalog, Nunaturals a Stevia Glycerite is my favorite for neutral flavor and aftertaste. And Maria Emmerich's technique of mixing sweeteners is brilliant for getting the right degree of sweetness without the negative side effects of any one of them, in too high a quantity (bitterness, laxative effect, mouth cooling, chemical aftertaste, etc).
