ISO: Pearl Sugar for Liege waffles

  • 6

fellow hounds,

I have been craving these tasty waffles for a while now and would like to make some this weekend... However, I have been unable to find Pearl Sugar...

Any ideas where I can find some?

No restriction on location, although anywhere in the Guy-Concordia vicinity would be great.

Thanks!

  1. Just did a quick Google and it seems that some Ikeas carry pearl sugar, since it's common in Scandinavian cooking. Might want to give them a call.

    This article gives a couple of other tips on where to look:

    Good luck!

      This article also suggests looking at cake-decorating shops:

      http://www.montrealgazette.com/life/f...

      ...so you might want to try places like:

      France Décor - http://maps.google.com/maps/place?oe=...

      Vixit - http://maps.google.com/maps/place?cid...

      ...and the like. Some other cake-decorating shops show up below each of the above Google profiles.

        To prevent confusion, I think France Decor & Vixit are the same establishment. Don't know why the two names for one establishment.

          Oh, that's very funny! I never noticed. When someone mentioned it in another thread, I didn't notice the address and thought it was a new place. Thanks for the clarification!

        Thanks Kpzoo,

        After further googling, I read that one can substitute pearl sugar for crushed sugar cubes. This maybe the only way I can get my fix this weekend, while I shop around for the read deal!

      3. I've bought pearl sugar at Laurier Gourmet on several occasions.
