Who is that and why should the general audience in the forum care?

That's like me posting here about the pancakes I just made.

You made pancakes? Do you use a secret family recipe or just the classic one?

 

P.S. See how we hijacked your thread to make it more interesting to the general Forum Audience? Or at least us. Unless Thornycrof​t also likes pancakes. :)

kg?....

Vanilla sugar is usually sold in really small packages (its not sold in big bags like normal sugar)

Oh my, I've never seen this product on the shelves here in California. I must try it.!

Penzey's is a local outfit, but they ship nationwide...

Or, if you're industrious and have access to fresh vanilla bean pods, try this...

I don't bake enough to make my own, but mom and I tried it when I was young.

I also keep orange and lemon zest (peel) and oil in my pantry. A drop of oil or a pinch of zest does wonders for many things.

Good stuff.

Hmm.. "artificially flavored vanilla sugar". :matte-motes-agape:

 

They are cheating you know. That's not vanilla sugar. It is vanillin sugar. Vanillin is synthetic flavoring made from either guaiacol or lignin. No real vanilla is used in it at all. Real vanilla comes from vanilla plant beans. The real vanilla tastes better than the synthetic vanillin. :matte-motes-delicious:

Where I live they cannot call vanillin sugar as "artificially flavored vanilla sugar". The bags clearly state:

Vanillin sugar and Vanilla sugar. So you know what you get. :matte-motes-smile:

I know.

But: It was the first suitable picture I found in google to show people what I was talking about. Of course there are always different brand in different price categories with different materials. Even between the "natural" flavored ones are big differences.

But you know, after all the whole food industry tries to cheat on you.
