Lavender Sugar

lavendersugarSugar scented with the delicate fragrance of lavender is ideal for sprinkling on cakes and desserts. Simply mix either dried or fresh lavender flowers with sugar and place in a lidded container. Store in a warm place for 1-2 weeks, shaking the container occasionally to distribute the lavender among the sugar. Sift the sugar to remove the lavender heads and store the scented sugar in a airtight container. For 1 cup of sugar, use either 2 tbps of dried lavender or 4 tbsps of fresh.
