How to make lavender sugar

When it comes to baking especially, there are small little changes that can uplift a recipe from.  Every day tastes can become something special with some thought and planning.

Lavender sugar is one of these little changes.  It’s ridiculously easy to make and will give delightful results (and lavender has many health benefits).  

I am very lucky to have extensive gardens available to me during the day with several different types of lavender.  Any type will do.  Some are more fragrant than others – use the type you like best!  It is however recommended that you choose organically grown lavender.  

The wonderful thing about flavored sugars is that you can build in any variety of extra flavors.  Citrus peel, mint, rosemary, Bay, vanilla, chamomile.  

Happy experiments to you!
