(Experiment 280)Pearl sugar

Swedish baking often makes use of pearl sugar. Unfortunately, I am in Canada and the price for it is crazy. Someone found a way to make it at home, I have tried it and it works pretty well. Kudo to the original poster of this trick

You need

  • 1tbsp water
  • 3/4cup sugar


  1. In a small saucepan add the water and sugar
  2. Turn the heat to low and stir with a wooden spoon. You don’t want too tiny bits or too big

    If the sugar doesn’t clump, add 1/2 tsp of water.
  3. Keep the heat on low and let the small piece of sugar “dry” slowly in the pan. Stir every now and then. This process will take 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. Put the pearl sugar on parchment paper and let them cool completely ( a few hours ). They will harden as they dry entirely
  5. Transfer to an airtight container
