CHOW Root Beer

Definitely 'different' if you're used to bland commercial rootbeer... re: sassafras... it is available in a "safrole-free" form with a little searching and the 'safety' concerns appear to be about as scientific as the *DEBUNKED* study claiming Stevia causes cancer (that ban was lifted pretty fast when the fake-sweetener makers figured out how much $$$ could be made with pre-packaged Stevia...) BTW Sarsaparilla tastes much like Sassafras, just not as strongly flavored, so omitting the Sassafras if you can't find it (or don't want to wait for a mail/internet order) will still give a reasonable facsimile of the complete recipe...
