Default Stevia Glycerite Conversion?

Hi all, I've got some stevia glycerite, and I want to use it in recipes. I have been unable to find a conversion chart. Does anybody know how much stevia equals a cup of sugar (or ANY recognizable measure), or what would be a comparable amount of liquid splenda?

Not sure (I never cook), but I'd probably check their website.

My real question is about the Dorothy Sayers quote. I don't really understand it, possibly because I don't know what "grouble" is. Please elaborate.

I think it might be trouble with a typo? I love Dorothy Sayers!

Yep, trouble with a type.

The website for the stevia glycerite mfr. was the first place I checked. Zero useful info: "Add 3-5 drops to a cup of tea or coffee. For use as a nutritional supplement." Not exactly helpful. 3-5 is an awfully big range, even assuming I could translate that to, say, a teaspoon's worth of sweetness, which I would certainly not count on.

I googled "stevia conversion sugar" and came up with a bunch of websites. I think this one has the info you're looking for. http://www.uppercanadastevia.com/content/view/25/40/

HTH!

thanks, Gale, I did the same google, but stevia concentrate or stevia liquid are not the same thing as stevia glycerite. I found stevia concentrate or extract or liquid or powder/granulated all over the place. Stevia glycerite is apparently a different sort of critter altogether. I give up. I'm just going to experiment until I get it right. Thanks for trying to help! I apparently bought the only truly wierd form of stevia.
