The Sweet Life

Flavored sugars add a new dimension to drinks, baked goods and more.

Can we all agree that “the tea lady”, Kris James, makes our culinary landscape that much richer? In addition to making custom tea blends, teaching classes at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and hosting five-course tea parties, the co-founder of Unearthed Arts has also created a line of flavored sugar. The sugar comes in a variety of flavors—including red raspberry, mocha, chai and salted coconut caramel, to name a few—to perk up everything from coffee and tea to popcorn, pancakes and cookies. $10. Available at Unearthed Arts. 44 W. Main St., Waconia; 952.442.4499.
