How to... Make Caster Sugar/"Superfine" sugar

Caster sugar is "superfine"/very fine sugar (though not as fine as powdered sugar). Due to its fineness, it dissolves very quickly and is ideal in meringues and cold liquids.

This is very easy and quick to make! Make sure to double the amount of granulated sugar for the amount of caster sugar the recipe calls for. (For example, the recipe calls for 1/4 cup caster sugar; thus, we processed 1/2 cup granulated sugar.)

Granulated sugar

1. Place your sugar into a food processor and process for a few minutes.
Note: This will cause a "sugar dust", so allow it to settle a few moments prior to opening the food processor.

Here is a close-up of the "sugar clouds" from processing the sugar:
