While finding alternative uses of pandan leaves on the net, we found a brilliant idea of making pandan flavored sugar. We love the idea of fragrant pandan leaves infused in our regular bottle of sugar.
Herb-infused sugar is nothing new. Herbs that are commonly used to flavour sugar include cinnamon and vanilla pod. We’re already thinking of other possibilities with asian herbs and spices!
YOU WILL NEED:
> Pandan leaves/ screwpine leaves
1. Cut pandan leaves With a pair of scissors, cut small pieces of pandan leaves into a glass jar.
2. Pour sugar into the glass jar
3. Mix sugar and pandan leaves Using a spoon, mix the sugar and pandan leaves throughly.
Now you have a jar of sugar scented with delicious fragrance of pandan leaves!
Let it sit for a week or so to allow the scent of pandan to be well infused into the sugar.
It’ll be a lovely sweetener for our favorite ginger lemongrass tea or a cup of coffee don’t you think?
