Chilebrown at home

Friday, June 22, 2012


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.

I was thinking it would be good in a rub but then I thought that would actually probably be redundant since the sugar would get smoked in the process anyway.

What will they think of next? Cranky and I decided the other day to smoke some cherries. We'd probably just eat them with some charcuterie.

Too bad the smoky taste was more of a hint. Maybe if you smoked some of the other ingredients, too, it would add that smoke that you were hoping for. Neat idea, anyway.

Chris, I had the same thoughts too.

cookiecrumb, You will have to let me know how the smoked cherries turn out.

Zoomie, Your funny!

It is a tough job you do CB! Eating all those cookies is the name of science. ;)

My favorites with their "smoked brown sugar" are salmon & popcorn. Amazing!

BTW - they're at the Redwood Empire Farmers Market @ the Vets building in Santa Rosa
