Someone said I should post this as a recipe, not just mention it on the gardening message board. It seems too simple to think of as a recipe, but here it is! (I also do this with rose-scented geranium leaves.)
- Let stand for at least a few days.
- Use in tea, over berries, in lemonade, sprinkled on scones before baking.
- Also makes a great "scrub" in the shower.
- 14 August 07- A couple of gals have asked me about ratios for this. It's entirely up to you. Some lavender is stronger than others and some people like a stronger flavour than others, so you just have to experiment and find what you like. Start with about 1T. per cup of sugar and go from there. Charlis.
This recipes interests me-but there is no ratio of blossoms to sugar (if there is a ratio,please would you let me know) This would make a great gift :)
The smell is so inviting, I have made Vanilla sugar before and never thought of Lavender sugar. I also put some lavender in powdered sugar and plan on making icing #65210 if I can ever find rose water. I made a special basket of Lavender fudge#172465, with Lavender shortbread #100640, , Lavender jelly #101138 a print out of the recipes and some chamomile tea for a special birthday gift last month. I have gone Lavender, I plan to make more things with lavender, I am hooked.
I have made this for several years now. My favorite use is to mix up diced mango and some fresh berries (like blackberries). Sprinkle the lavender sugar over it. I let it set overnight and then have it for lunch the next day. Unbelievably wonderful!
