Author, blogger and TV host Shauna Sever has great ideas for homemade infused sugars. Try cinnamon, vanilla, citrus, mint, basil. Even edible flowers such as rosebuds or lavender. Just combine 2 cups of one of our organic sugars along with the herb or spice in a 1 pint jar. Wait a week, turning the jar or shaking gently. Presto! Youre ready to use it anywhere youd use an extract or oil.



Impress your friends with the word hygroscopic. Thats one of the roles sugar plays in baking. It naturally attracts and bonds with water, keeping your favorite baked goods moist. Celebrate science with milk and cookies today! Thanks for the insight, Carol Kicinski.
