Crush Sugar Cubes For Granulated Sugar

This might sound funny, but I will explain. Being a diabetic, I recently discovered that the sugar cubes are portion controlled and better for me than artificial sweeteners, which make me sick.


However, sometimes I need to sprinkle sugar on say spaghetti sauce or chili. I came up with this little trick. Simply put the cubes between two saucers and gently rock them back and forth, pressing down. You will crush the cube between the nested saucers and then you can sprinkle away!

Have you ever tried stevia as a sugar substitute? It is not aspartame, splenda, or anything like that. It comes from the stevia plant and people have been using it in places like South American for thousands of years. It mixes well into coffee and tea.


I have never tried it in spaghetti sauce, but I would say it would be worth a try.

Some of the newer stevia products out there also have sugar in them, so be careful. Sweetleaf is just stevia and has a glycemic index of 0. I usually buy it online, but have also bought it at grocery stores and healthfood stores.

I like stevia too, I buy the truvia brand & use it. But my big question, is why do you need to put sugar in your spaghetti sauce or chili in the first place?

Because sugar is a great ingredient to balance out the acidity of tomato based sauces.

Im glad you are controlling your diet with portion control, but the phrase "need to put sugar over spaghetti sauce" makes me question your desire to ruin spaghetti sauce or your addiction to sugar.


But yes the two bowls trick is good for small amounts of sugar.
