WOW, what a wonderful recipe!!!!
My sis and me made the ginger-cinnamon version to give-away to friends in a coffee/tea themed gift basket and they loved this sugar specialty! They have been using it for quite some time now and definitely want the recipe or a refill. :)
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this terrific gift idea with us, Annacia!

This worked fantastically. I made the lavender one for gifts! They were amazing and smelled so fantastic! I did not wait the whole two weeks before trying this but the gifts will be aging well! *Made for Beverage Tag*
I chose to make the sugar using a vanila bean. I could hardly wait for the week to pass by to try this flavored sugar out. It was definitely worth the wait. I used the vanilla sugar in my morning cup of tea and it was delicious. I'm going to make some more to give out as gifts. Thanks for sharing another wonderful recipe, Annacia.

Anna this was wonderful. I made the ginger/cinnamon version, scaled it down to 1 cup, as its just for me. It is delicious. I used it in my coffee this morning, love the warm glow from the ginger and cinnamon. I used extra candied ginger and one cinnamon stick, which I ground down and threw into the grinder, it worked beautifully. The sugar is soft and powdered like icing sugar with a kick. Thanks so much for sharing, can't wait to try the candy cane version next. Made for NA/ME Feb. Sun & Spice Event
The vanilla bean sugar is outstanding! I am going to make this for some inexpensive gifts for Christmas this year. This is an amazing recipe/idea!
10/31/09: On 10/20 I just dumped the sugar into the lavender; today I strained the sugar into a cup of provence rouge tea. It was fabulous! Thank you Annacia! 10/20/09:The cinnamon did seem to overpower the crystallized ginger, so I added 1 t of (fairly fresh) ground ginger. That said, what a delightful recipe to start with. It is so easily tweaked. Oh, I did grind it in the (clean) coffee grinder. Thank you for posting.
