Infused Sugars

Infused sugars are ideal for any spring or summer soiree. They're versatile and can be customized to a specific region's flavor with ingredients like vanilla beans, espresso beans or even exotic fruits. For an added touch to make your gift even sweeter, attach a tag to the canister with a special family recipe that includes their new infused sugar. Design by Eden Passante of Sugar and Charm

Choose an ingredient (suggestions: whole coffee beans, vanilla beans, lavender or citrus zest). Let the ingredients dry out on wax paper overnight before adding them to the sugar. In a sealed container, layer the sugar with your ingredient of choice. The sugar will take a few days to infuse, so keep the containers tightly sealed.
