Colored sugar can be really funny. I use it on cookies, porridge and anything that needs sugar to bright it up. To make colored sugar you need food color and regular sugar. Mix the color into the sugar, it usually becomes lighter when the sugar dries; so make it darker then you want it. Then spread the sugar on a baking tray and let it dry completely.
Yesterday I ate dinner at my cousin’s place. My cousin has three small grandchildren and during the evening she put a bag of popcorn in the microwave. I asked her; why don’t you make it yourself, it’s just a pot on the stove. My cousin replied that it is so complicated and that she always ended up with a burnt pot.
