This is an awesome recipe! It is so easy to make and tastes wonderful! Its great used in quick breads, muffins or scones or added to tea or granola. We loved it and so do our friends who received this as part of a birthday gift-basket.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this great recipe here, Rita!

Fabulous, Fabulous, FABULOUS!!! I bake with lavender extensively but have never made Lavender Sugar before. What cinched it for me was the addition of the Vanilla Bean! My lavender flowers must have been too intense; I ended up needing to use 1.5 cups of sugar rather than the 1 cup required; also added 2 vanilla beans, chopped into 4 pieces each. I shook the container each day for a week and ended up with a gorgeously infused amount of sugar for baking and tea. I found this recipe in the PAC thread; so glad that I did!

A friend of mine was kind enough to provide me with enough lavender flowers to make this sugar so that I could include it in yet another recipe I'd chosen in the current round of PAC! So, I'm now prepared & your recipe is a great keeper, as well, says my friend, to whom I gifted a cup of your sugar! Many thanks, Rita!

Smells amazing, tastes amazing. I use it for possibly every recipe that requires sugar.

This is phenomenal! I used some in some tea and it was the most delicious and relaxing cup of tea I can remember having in a long time! Thanks my dear friend for sending me this! You are an angel! I am planning to make more of this and give as gifts. What a perfect treat for anyone you want to pamper or spoil! Thanks Rita!
