Turn Sugar into Confectioner’s Sugar

I have not purchased confectioner’s sugar for at least 15 years. I make it fresh when I need it and never have it get old or cakey in the cupboard.

If you do want enough to store, add 1 teaspoon cornstarch per 1 cup sugar in the blender.

Using a clean glass blender (will scratch plastic), add one cup sugar. Cover and pulse until fine and powdery. Pour through a seive into a container and use right away.

As an alternate, pulse about 30 seconds for superfine sugar. This is a perfect alternate to granulated sugar for whipped cream, frosting, cheesecake, angelfood cake, and so on.

Use your new non GMO sugar for making confectioner’s or powdered sugar.


About rebeccatreeseed

I am a naturalist raised by naturalists. Treeseed is my earned name, while Rebecca is my birth name. I am of Northern European descent, with a quarter Irish.quarter thrown in. I suspect I was a product of northern invaders into Ireland into Ireland. but hard to say since DNA disproved the family story about Apache blood! I have found some odd ancestors to replace them. Last year I bought 5 acres of pinyon-juniper forest on the side of a mountain in Santa Fe County, New Mexico. I am fulfilling a lifetime dream of a cabin in the mountains and a food forest that will feed me and local wildlife. I want to share this new phase of my life with others that might be interested.
