    French Tart's Note:

    French Lavender & Tahitian Vanilla - what a great combination! A very simple but effective flavoured sugar; I always have a jar or two in my pantry ready to use in my cooking and baking! This sugar is WONDERFUL sprinkled on cakes, scones, biscuits (cookies), sweet tarts and baked desserts, as well as ice cream. You must make sure your lavender heads are free of pesticides, fertiliser and traffic pollution. Also a great gift idea - tie a sprig of lavender around the neck of the jar with a ribbon and a lavender recipe......et Voila!!

      Hi FT... I made this with the lavender that was kindly sent to me last season. The lavender scent and flavor is so warm and romantic. I love it sprinkled on simple buttered toast. I made enough to gift some of it. Karen, thanks so much for the lavender experiences. Kathy
