  • vanilla sugar - sugar and vanilla pods 
  • lemon sugar - lemon zest and sugar  
  • cinnamon sugar - cinnamon and sugar  


  • Vanilla sugar is done 2 ways. Slit new or used vanilla bean pods and place in jar of sugar. The sugar will absorb the vanilla flavoring. As use sugar just add more sugar to jar.
  • I personally prefer to grind vanilla beans with sugar in my coffee grinder to almost powder stage. I use about 2 beans for 2 cups sugar.
  • Depends on how strong of vanilla taste you want it to have. Great in coffee if you like the vanilla flavored coffee's, sprinkled on cookies, on ice cream. 
  • Lemon Sugar is just sugar combined with as much dried lemon zest or dehydrated lemon peel powder as you prefer.  
  • Cinnamon sugar is just like Mom and Grandma have done for years. 1 cup sugar to amount of cinnamon you like. I like mine heavy on the cinnamon and sugar so use quite a bit of cinnamon.  Use on buttered toast, sprinkle on warm sugar cookies, over any sweet potato or pumpkin dish, in coffee.
