Here is something new for the books. Smoked brown sugar was found at the Santa Rosa Farmers market. “The Smoked Olive” company sells various smoked olive oils. If that is not unique enough they have smoked brown sugar. One whiff of this fragrant sweet product sold us immediately. The uses for this smoky sweet product are only limited by your imagination.
We brought our sugar home and decided to bake some cookies. The recipe used can be found on the back of your chocolate chip package. The sugar in its raw form is very fragrant. Once cooked into our cookies the aroma was only a memory. There was only a faint, small hint of smoke in our cookies. I had to eat the whole batch of cookies for testing purposes.
The verdict is not out on this product. We will try it some more and report back. The cookies sure were good.
