Hosting the annual Thanksgiving dinner is never easy. Whether it’s the first time hosting the holiday feast or the 40th, getting everything right and served together on time is a daunting task. When menu planning feels like an overwhelming gourmet to-do, it’s appropriate to remember beloved American chef Julia Child who said, “You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients.”
This Thanksgiving, take rein of the baked goods on the menu with the purest and best sugar available, Caribbean Liquid Sugar. Hey Shuga! and Lil’ Shuga! are cane sugar syrups that are 100% USDA organic, gluten-free, GMO free, vegan, kosher and preservative free. Hey Shuga! is a pure cane sugar syrup and Lil’ Shuga! is a blend of both cane sugar and Stevia. These Shuga syrups pour more easily than honey and will be the delicious game changers for this year’s Thanksgiving baking.
Professional bakeries love Hey Shuga! because it takes approximately 30% less time to bake. The baking community reports their baked goods taste better, stay fresh longer, have better texture, and show superior browning. This holiday try Hey Shuga! in a delectable sweet potato casserole or an out of this world candied yams dish. Try out Hey Shuga! or Lil’ Sugar in any traditional Thanksgiving dish that’s baked with sugar and see what all the professional bakeries are cheering about.
Check out the conversion of Granulated Sugar to Caribbean Liquid Sugar:
• 1 Cup White Sugar = 2/3 Cup Hey Shuga! or 1/3 Cup Lil’ Shuga!
• Reduce other liquids slightly from 1/4 to 1/3 cup.
• 1 Cup Brown Sugar = 2/3 Cup Hey Shuga! or 1/3 Cup Lil’ Shuga!
• Reduce other liquids by 1/4 cup because brown sugar has a higher moisture content than white sugar.
One great benefit of HeyShuga is reduced baking time. Caribbean Liquid Sugar encourages baked items to brown more quickly, so reduce oven temperatures by 25°F or decrease baking time by 30%.
