We loved the idea of infused spirits so much that we decided to play with scented sugars too. Both charming and delicious, these sugars can be used to flavor coffee, tea, and baked goods,or just sprinkled on toast and waffles.

Ingredients

For the vanilla sugar:

  • 1-2 whole vanilla beans (depending on how strong you’d like flavor to be)
  • 2 cups white granulated sugar
  • 1 airtight container

For the orange sugar:

  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 2 cups white granulated sugar
  • 1 airtight container

Directions

For the vanilla sugar:
Pour sugar into the container. Slice vanilla beans lengthwise. Scrape out the seeds and mix these into the sugar. Add beans to the sugar. Follow instructions below.

For the orange sugar:
Remove zest (outer peel) from orange with a citrus peeler. You can also use a paring knife or vegetable peeler and then scrape as much of the white pith off the zest as possible. Allow zest to dry for 24 hours. Pour sugar into the jar. Add zest. Follow instructions below.

Instructions:
Begin infusion process for both kinds of sugar by shutting the container tightly and storing it out of direct sunlight for one to two weeks. Taste and stir it every two or three days. This will distribute the flavor and prevent sugar from clumping as it absorbs moisture from the beans. It is not necessary to remove beans from sugar before consuming. The flavored sugar is good as long as its scent is still aromatic and its flavor true.
