Lavender Sugar...

Sometimes the simplest of things
can be so special...

(click photos to enlarge)

Like Lavender
I have been obsessed with it since my trip
to Lavender Festival

(The Lavender Cookbook, by Sharon Shipley)

So I bought a Lavender cookbook...

I have dried lots of buds over the summer
so this winter I can try some of the recipes...


Today I made Lavender Sugar...

It only has two ingredients
(yes lavender and sugar:-)


1 Tbs. Lavender Buds (organic)
2 cups sugar (I used organic unbleached sugar)

Grind the Lavender with 1 Tbs sugar
in a spice grinder until fine...
stir into the remaining sugar...

Let it stand 3 days before using...
the flavor will keep for 6 months...

It is good for baking,  sprinkling
and sweetening drinks...


I will be using mine for tea..
and a batch of sugar cookies...


It smells delightful
so simple and elegant:-)

Today I am joining...


Sweet Dreams...
