Bonnie's Orange & Vanilla Sugar
Another great extract recipe from another amazing vanilla extract pro, Bonnie. She does wonders with oranges and lemons, and this is her acclaimed orange sugar recipe. You can see Bonnie's posts and progress in our private Facebook group, Making Vanilla Extract by VanillaPura.
Here are the instructions in Bonnie's words:
When my orange extract was complete I used the peels to make orange sugar with a vanilla bean added.
I drained off the extract and added 8 cups of sugar in a baking pan with my used orange rinds to dry. When it was almost dry I put in the oven at 170F. Stirring every 10 to 50 minutes. When dry I let it cool completely. It sat over night. The next morning I removed the peels and some sugar from the pan and placed in a blender to grind up the peels. Added them back into the sugar and added 2 more cups of sugar and a vanilla bean. It has an excellent flavor and smell! Orange sugar with a hint of vanilla 😋
