Flavoured Sugars in Time for Mother’s Day


08 May Flavoured Sugars in Time for Mother’s Day

lavender.jpgWhile my frugal vanilla sugar relied on a long, slow infusion with used vanilla pods, you can whip up some lovely homemade sugars right now in time for Mother’s Day.  

If you’re like me, you’ve left things to the last minute. And if your mom is anything like mine, homemade is the way to her heart. So this just might be the perfect solution.

Recently, I interviewed Heidi Noble, author of Menus from the Orchard Table (Whitecap, 2007), about flavoured sugars. She pulverizes herbs and spices into white sugar for instant yet intoxicating sweet options. You can read the complete article, Concoct a Sweet Gift of Flavoured Sugars, online at CanadianHomeandCountry.com.

A pretty jar, a hand written tag and you’re good to go.

Do you give gifts on Mother’s Day? If so, what treats do you have in mind?

    Speaking of flavoured sugars, this is an emerging trend! The same company that sells the amazing bulk salts in Longos and Metro, Just a Pinch, has amazing flavoured sugars that I have been using at my house for a few months now thanks to them dropping off a generous sample kit.

    Highly reccomend them if making your own isn’t on the agenda.

    Netts, thanks for the kind words. Glad to know my mom isn’t the only sucker for homemade.

    Dana, I’m on the front end of an emerging trend?! Well, this is a first. Good to know about Just a Pinch. I’m a real sucker for this kind of thing.
