I have a list of flavored sugars I'm going to try and make (vanilla, lemon, lime, orange, possibly ginger) - has anyone done this and how was the result? What flavors did you use?
Because I do a lot of German baking/cooking, I learned long ago to make my own Vanilla Sugar. I use it all the time-- and it's so easy to make!
I take app.10 lbs of sugar (I always use organic sugar, but white sugar works well too) and two vanilla beans. Place the sugar in a container that can be sealed air tight. Slice the two vanilla beans in half, length-wise, and insert these down into the sugar. Then seal the container and leave it untouched for app. 2 weeks. Use what you need when you need it, and the sugar kept in the air-tight container will keep quite a while.
I use the approximate proportion of 1 Tbsp vanilla sugar = 1 tsp vanilla. I use this in baked goods, for sweetening whipping cream, to sprinkle on top of fruit. It's very versatile!
How fun that you're going to experiment with even more flavors. I'll love to know how these turn out for you!
