Mint sugar is wonderful topping for fresh fruit salads and it’s wonderful have some on hand. For this recipe you can use mint as well as peppermint!

You can preserve the sugar in air tight jars in the fridge or let it dry completely and it’s enough to preserve it tight avoiding humidity to have an impact with the quality. Fresh prepared is the best!

I used this sugar with strawberries and chocolate and made cute snacks placing them on skewers on a watermelon crust. Great for parties! Please avoid sun and heat! J
