Make your own powdered sugar in two minutes with a food processor, blender, or even a coffee grinder. Confectioners sugar, also known as XXXX sugar, is simply pure sugar that's been run through a huge machine. Chef Remy explains some things to know about making it yourself. First, run it long enough to accomplish the task. Less than a minute renders a product that is still grainy. When you see some white smoke rising from the blades, don't worry, it's not smoke! It's powder in the air around the blades and rises up because it's a bit hotter than the air around it. There's no danger, but don't breathe it because that is sugar that shouldn't be in your lungs.
Another thing, watch for sugar melting on the leading edge of your processor blades. That happens when running the processor too long. Shorten the runs, stopping, and running again after a minute. This doesn't happen on a blender due to slower speeds. Some food processors have plastic blades. Use them instead.
Powdered sugar isn't just for garnish. It is mostly for avoiding the grainy taste in certain foods such as fillings and also helps to blend. You can now control this and avoid the expense of having XXXX sugar sitting around. Make it yourself from now on.
