Flavoring Sugar for Cotton Candy

Jackie Avery | May 6, 2005 03:49 PM

Does anyone have any advice for flavoring sugar to be used to make cotton candy?
I've had a professional machine for about a year now, and have used comercially flavored sugars, and also plain sugar. After reading Jeffrey Steingarten's article on cotton candy this month, I want to experiment with infusing the sugar with flavor without gumming up my machine. (which I think anything moist or with too much body of its own might do)
I'm thinking some kind of extract or edible essential oil might work- has anyone tried these or other methods?
