Make Your Own

Cooking Secrets to Make Life Easier

BROWN SUGAR

 

1 T. unsulphured, blackstrap molasses - Add 1 T. or more for darker sugar

1 c. organic sugar

 

Molasses is the “good stuff” that is refined from sugar. Blackstrap unsulphured molasses is healthiest and contains a plethora of nutritional benefits.

POWDERED SUGAR 

  

2-3 T. organic cornstarch

Choose organic to avoid genetically modified corn.

1 c. of sugar- regular white sugar is not only refined but full of harmful chemicals.

 

Shop your discount store for bulk prices. Beware of beet sugar as it is most likely genetically modified.

Place sugar and cornstarch in blender or food processor. Grind for several pulses into a fine powder.

 

While it is common knowledge that sugar is unhealthy, it’s doubtful we’ll all be giving it up anytime soon. You might as well make your own and feel a bit better about consuming it.
