Versatile and delicious!
Making your own lavender sugar is simple. It just takes a little patience to wait until it’s ready, but then you can use it in cookies, cakes, frostings, tea, cocktails... let your imagination and taste buds be your guide! Flavored sugars have a soft, mellow taste that should be used to lightly enhance dishes and complement their flavor, not overwhelm it.
¼ cup dried lavender flowers (culinary grade – no pesticides or sprays)
2 cups granulated sugar
Alternate the sugar and flowers in layers in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Let stand for two weeks or more. After standing, sift the sugar to remove the flowers, or for a more colorful mix, process the flowers and sugar in a blender or food processor until the lavender is finely ground. Store sugar in an airtight container.
