Tips and ideas

Brown sugar in cooking

Brown sugar is great for cooking. Try lightly coating chicken pieces with brown sugar before frying them. Wonderful!

Ginger syrup

3 dl Dansukker Light Syrup
75 g fresh ginger


Peel and dice the ginger. Put the syrup and ginger in a saucepan. Cover and simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow it to cool. Strain the syrup and discard the ginger. Pour into a bottle. Seal. Store at room temperature.

Give your tomatoes added flavour

Tomatoes acquire added flavour if you sprinkle on a little sugar.

Great for fried plaice or crispy iceberg lettuce

Mix approx. 100 ml lightly whipped cream with 2 tbsp lemon juice and 1 tbsp Granulated sugar. It's great for fried plaice or crispy iceberg lettuce.

If food tastes too strong...

If the taste of the food has become too strong, you can neutralise it with a little sugar. If you use low-fat dairy products for dressings, you can reduce the sour taste with a little icing sugar.

Recycle your syrup bottles

• Perfect for freezing your home-made fruit cordials. Make sure you leave some empty space at the top, since liquids expand on freezing.
• Fill a bottle with sauce or dressing. Practical for taking on picnics.
• Fill a bottle with jam to make a handy do-it-yourself squeeze bottle. If the jam is too thick, liquidise it in the blender.
• Use as a water bottle during your workout, or for carrying kids’ drinks. Ideal for keeping wasps out!
• Use as a liquid measure when cooking.

Spicy sugar

Pour some sugar into a jar with a tight lid. Add e.g. a few cinnamon sticks or a few sprigs of lavender or mint. Other condiments can also be used. Just follow your tastes. Put the lid on and allow the sugar to draw for a few weeks. The longer it stands, the more taste you will get. You can also dry some herbs and crumble them into the sugar.

Whipped cream – making it even more delicious

Do you usually serve whipped cream with cakes and desserts? It's even more delicious if you sprinkle in some Granulated sugar or vanilla sugar.
