Loved it for its simplicity and deliciousness! My family uses the syrup on pancakes, waffles, etc. I use the syrup if i want a quick drink for company. I put it into a carafe and add water to taste; voila. So simple!! It seemed like such a waste to compost the precious leaves, so I dehydrated them. It's sweet candy; melts in your mouth practically.
