T - sorry, have been traveling, didn't see this until now. I'm afraid i don't have a friend request from you, and your profile's set to private so i can neither comment back on your question below, nor post an answer to your board i'm afraid...
Sebastian I have sent a friend request because I want to talk to you about sugar alternatives like stevia for chocolate. Is there one cultivar that is best to use? I eat Paleo and have food intolerances, no fructose for one, and autoimmune conditions and insulin resistance and looking for some way to have a sweet treat occasionally. I feel you might understand a possible work around.
Hi and welcome to TCL. I learned a lot from your post in reply to Sunita about the relationships with growers, fair trade, etc. I look forward to learning more from you, as you seem quite knowledgeable.
I'm curious, too. You said your favorite chocolate is your own. Do you make your own chocolate from the bean? What is it called?
