    Scented Sugars (Hostess Gift Idea). Scented sugar adds a subtle perfume and flavor to coffee, fruit desserts & baked goods. Layer granulated sugar with aromatic edibles like scented geranium leaves, rose petals, orange & lemon peel (first set out for a day to dry), or vanilla beans. Mix small batches & let them sit for a few days in tightly sealed jars while the scents infuse the sugar. One jar, or a trio, makes an unusual present for whomever you think could use a little sweetness. (Dec1993)

infusing sugar-1. Zest the fruit you want to use to give your sugar a touch of flavor. Leave it out overnight to dry COMPLETELY, especially if you’re using fruit! 2. Layer the sugar and the zest in a glass container. When you reach the top add some extra zest for color. 3. Let the sugar sit for at least one week before you use.-
