Greetings, DIY Enthusiasts:
Now that the holiday shopping season is underway and gift-giving is on our minds, I thought it would be a great time to tell you about lavender sugar, a perfect holiday gift for Lavender lovers and very easy to make. Organic culinary lavender is available in most health foods grocery stores, local lavender farms and herbs stores.
Directions: Place two teaspoons of organic dried lavender flowers, or three short lavender sprigs, in the bottom of a clean glass jar. Pour over enough sugar to fill the jar and cap tightly. Leave for a few days and the sugar will have taken up the fragrance of the lavender.
Lavender sugar can be enjoyed in tea, coffee and baking recipes, and will add a tantalizing flavor to sweet creations.
