Flavored sugars are a great way to add more complexity and flavor to a dish. It also makes a nice and colorful addition to fruity drinks. Super easy to make and great for gifts. Great for flavoring homemade candies!
Step 1: BoM
Sugar (whatever kind you like, I use cane)
Freeze dried strawberries
Blender/food processor/grinder of some sort
4 teaspoons of powdered fruit to 1 cup of sugar seems to be a good ratio. But obviously, increase or decrease depending on your preferences.
Step 2: Strawberries
Blend/grind your freeze dried strawberries into a fine powder. I chose to grind the strawberries by hand because I had such a small amount, it didn't seem worth using my Vitamix. You can find freeze dried strawberries in most stores, mine came from Trader Joe's.
Step 3: Sugar
Add the strawberries to your sugar and mix well. Taste test to determine if you need more strawberry or not.
Step 4: Store
Keep the strawberry sugar in an airtight container. This sugar should last 2-3 months.
