Hello darlings! My family harvested their lavender and I decided to make one of my favorites....lavender sugar! It is so easy to make and tastes delicious. It also makes a fabulous gift idea.
Cut some of your organic lavender from your garden. If you don't have any, it's very inexpensive and can be bought at any store that has a plant department or nursery. Triple wash it and hang it upside down to dry.
Once it's dry, peel it off the stalks and put the petals in your blender or food processor.
Once it is finely ground, mix it in with your sugar. My favorite sugar to use is organic raw sugar but you can use anything you would like. If you want to make lavender powdered sugar, add the sugar with the lavender in your food processor and it will turn into a fluffy puff of sweetness.
The ratios to this recipe are completely up to you. I like mine on the stronger side so I use plenty of the lavender petals. Start with a little bit of lavender and add more according to what you like. If you prefer to not have the petals blended in, you can stick a little stalk of lavender in your sugar and seal it in an air-tight container and let it sit for a few days. The lavender will lightly flavor your sugar. To switch it up a bit, you can throw in a vanilla bean to make lavender vanilla sugar!
Hope you enjoy! If you give it a shot I would love to know how yours turned out!
