Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spread the sugar thin on the parchment paper.  Use a fork to break up any lumps.

Dry the sugar slowly in a 175 F oven for 10 to 15 minutes, maybe longer if you use a lot of food coloring.  OR spread thin and leave to air dry for several hours or overnight.  The second method can be a problem if it is humid weather.

Let cool completely.  Store in a labeled airtight container in a cool dry place, not the refrigerator.
