Can you grind turbinado/demarera sugar to make it more usable? Answered

The lesson says turbinado sugar won't melt during baking. Is this only due to the crystal size? Is there a chemical property also holding it back from melting? Is it possible to grind/mill this sugar to a smaller size so that you can use it in more applications?

Turbinado sugar won't melt when put on the tops of baked goods simply because it's not exposed to enough moisture. You can use it 1-to-1 for white or brown sugar in recipes where you will actually be mixing it in with the batter/dough! You can grind it easily in a food processor, but it isn't necessary.
