Let me guess…

In years past, you’ve done cookies. You’ve done fudge. You’ve made cloth wreaths and rice pillows. You’ve baked tiny loaves of bread, and you’ve jarred caramel sauce.

What can you make your friends and family this year that you haven’t made them before?

How about Flavored Sugar Recipes!

Flavored Sugar Recipes take minutes to make and are fun to give as gifts!

You can make nearly any variety under the sun, but today I’m sharing my 6 favorite flavored sugar recipes.

From spicy, to boozy, to flower scented, these sugars are wonderful to have on hand for stirring into coffee, sprinkling over oatmeal, or even sprinkling on plain sugar cookies.

Simply add 1 cup of sugar to a small glass jar, then add in the additional ingredients and shake.

Over time the ingredients release their essence into the sugar and give it a wonderful scent and flavor.

It’s best to mix your Flavored Sugar Recipes several days in advance. However, if you are in a pinch for time, one day ahead will work.

You can use plain granulated sugar, turbinado sugar, palm sugar, date sugar, any kind you like. But remember, the course sugars work best with moist add-ins because the are less likely to dissolve.

If adding wet ingredients to your Flavored Sugar Recipes, shake them well in a larger container, then let them air dry. They will clump a little while drying, so shake again to break up the clumps before jarring.

You can even use culinary grade flowers like lavender and rosebuds.

These are great for adding to tea, scones, and shortbread!

    I’ve been making vanilla sugar for years. One thing worth mentioning is that the vanilla bean is reusable for several ‘infusions’. I just keep adding sugar until the flavor starts to fade.

    That orange vanilla bourbon sounds like something I need to try.

    I love these! How long are they good for?

      Hi Jenna! Usually about a week in an airtight container, but ours never lat that long. :)

        What do you use the vanilla sugar in? I need ideas to use some of the recipes for these sugars but not sure how to use them.

      • Sommerposted July 31, 2017 at 4:01 pm

        Hi Nettie! You can use vanilla sugar in just about anything that would benefit from a little extra flavor… Coffee, oatmeal, and plain yogurt are my top picks. :)
