Homemade flavored sugars are the perfect holiday gift — versatile enough that they can be used for a variety of purposes, but also simply made with love.The core ingredient here is granulated white sugar, the finer the grain the easier it is to infuse with your natural ingredients. The ratio of sugar and ingredients depends on personal taste, and preparation method. If you mix your ingredients by hand tossing them, the aroma will be lighter, if you use a food processor to blend them, the taste and aroma will be stronger. I will be dabbling with the below ingredients this year.

When my uncle sent me this recipe with no measurements, his argument was that he was "an artist, not a chef." True, but seeing as I wanted to make sure his delicious ham was replicated perfectly every time, I sought out the help of chef and owner Steve Waxman, of Trax Restaurant & Café. With the foundations of my uncle's recipe and the help of Waxman, this holiday ham is, I have to say, the perfect one — deliciously coated in a sweet, citrusy glaze, and precisely baked so that it retains a most and tender flesh.
