Mint Sugar

Mint Sugar

I decided to give growing mint in my garden a try this year so I planted 1 mint plant and it is enormous already!  I started looking for some ways to use the mint and found this recipe for mint sugar on a blog called “The Nerdy Farm  Wife”.  It was really easy to make but I haven’t had a chance to try it out on anything yet like cupcakes or muffins or pancakes or waffles or toast or cookies or anything!  Here’s how to make it:

Blend 1/3 cup sugar with 8 fresh mint leaves in a food processor.  Use right away or for longer storage, spread in a single layer on a cookie sheet and let air dry overnight.  Store in a covered container.

That’s it!  I tripled the recipe and will let you know when I have a minute to give it a try!
