Use basil sugar in cobblers, crisps, to sweeten tea or berries, or in ice cream.
1 tablespoon basil pulp*
1 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 200.
In a stand mixer, on a medium speed combine sugar and basil pulp. From here you can get creative. Using molds, ice cube trays or forming sugar cubes. You can also simply spread the sugar over the baking sheet to create regular granular sugar. Bake for at least 15 minutes. Allow to cool completely and store in an airtight container.**
*to make basil pulp either use a food processor or mortar and pestle to grind handfuls of basil until the one tablespoon is reached. If there is excess juice, include the juice in the sugar mixture along with the pulp.
**I store my basil sugar in the freezer, just in case.
