Grinding turbinado sugar? Answered

Could I grind the turbinado sugar and use it for baking? Would it be a way of avoiding all the processing involved in obtaining granulated white sugar, which I have read is unhealthy?

Yes, you can grind turbinado sugar and use it as a substitute for white sugar. Be careful not to grind it into a powder or it will not have enough sharp crystal edges to 'cut' into the fat to cause enough air bubbles in the mixture or dough. You can also substitute cane sugar for white sugar which is ground to the same consistency.
