Homemade sugar cubes



In the Internet you can find different ways to prepare homemade sugar cubes...I'll now describe you the one which, after many attempts, allowed me to obtain sugar cubes that don't crumble upon the lightest touch, but still dissolve rapidly in a warm drink.

What you need:
a small cup of sugar (white, brown, or a mix of the two)
water
an ice cube or chocolate mold
time and patience =)
Directions:
Soak a small cup with water. Don't leave water inside, but also make sure it does not dry. Then fill it with sugar. Stir a little bit, till you get the consistency of wet sand.

If you have a mold for very small ice cubes, like mine, fill in the mold with the mixture to the top, and then press the mixture down with your fingers. If the mold is bigger, fill only half of it.

And now be patient...you have to resist all night long without taking the cubes out of the mold...I know it's hard, but you'd rather wait rather than risk breaking them.

After several hours, you can take them out of the mold, and admire your lovely shiny little cubes!
