LIEGE WAFFLES - THE OTHER BELGIAN WAFFLE
Liege Waffles - The Other Belgian Waffle
I have been itching to make Liege waffles for years, but have never been able to find Pearl Sugar. Granted I could order it over the net, but I hate paying shipping and handling on baking ingredients, Vanilla beans are one thing, Sugar is quite a bit heavier. Recently, while hunting for Demerara Sugar, I was lucky enough to find some, quite by accident. I have since heard that Swedish Pearl Sugar may be found in some U.S. IKEA stores as well, although I have never seen it at the San Diego IKEA. Swedish Pearl sugar is smaller than the Belgian though. If you are desperate for Liege waffles it will work, but the Belgian Sugar is SO much better, it's worth the extra effort to find it.
