French Tart's Note:
An easy spiced and fruited sugar, which really adds a "zing" to your apple pies, apple crumbles, cake toppings, baked desserts etc. This spiced sugar mix is based on a 400-year-old English recipe. Spiced sugars were extremely popular in England many centuries ago, they disguised a multitude of sins; and, as spices & citrus fruits were still new & seen as extremely exotic, they were held in high regard and enjoyed especially by Royalty and the Gentry!

- 1If you have no dried citrus zest, first make your dried orange & lemon zest by placing into a warm oven (just after it has been turned off) and leaving it to dry over night; or, if it is summer, cover and leave outside. (Place zest on a tray lined with greaseproof paper.).
- 2When you are ready to make the spiced sugar, simply mix all the spices in with the sugar - mixing well.
- 3Add the dried citrus zest, pour into a clean jar or airtight container and keep in a dark, cool and dry place for up to 3-4 months.
- 4You can make this with fresh citrus zest if you do not intend to keep it for longer than a week or two.
