Scented sugar adds a subtle perfume and flavor to coffee, fruit desserts, and baked goods. Layer granulated sugar with aromatic edibles like scented geranium leaves, rose petals, orange and lemon peel (first set out for a day to dry), or vanilla beans. Mix small batches, and let them sit for a few days in tightly sealed jars while the scents infuse the sugar. One jar or a trio serves makes an unusual present for whomever you think could use a little sweetness!
Ingredients:1 cup sugar 1 cup salt 1 lemon with rind Fresh or dried dill 2 tablespoon Vermouth or Gin 1 pound of salmon
Step 2: Pour half the mixture in a glass pan and cover with dill. If you don't have fresh dill use dried.
Step 4: Pour the remainder of the mixture on top of the salmon and place dill on top of mixture. Cover tightly with saran wrap.
Step 6: Rinse off sugar and salt mixture. Pat dry with a paper towel. To store left overs wrap tightly with saran wrap and keep refrigerated.
Step 7: Serve to your liking. I like to cut it into thin slices and put it on a blini with creme fraiche or on top of a salad (see above).
