Well, superfine sugar is known to be used when making candies, canning, brining and other specialty applications.
Basically, it’s just a finer grain of sugar than the caster sugar, and this is due to further processing, which you can accomplish in your very own kitchen. This way, you’ll always have superfine sugar when you need it without having to run to the store to purchase an entire container of it for one project or recipe you want to make.
Today, for instance, I am using this superfine sugar I’m making for making Sugared Cranberries, and I’m looking for better, finer coverage over the surface of my cranberries.
