"This is wonderful just to open and sniff! I made four jars one with lavender and sugar put into my vita mix to make into lavender powdered sugar(Which is nice if you don't want lavender buds in your baking. Or to add to a cup of comforting tea), then jarred two with lavender and the fourth I put in a vanilla bean. Can be used in cake or cookie mixes, a cup of tea, in a frosting or glaze, salad dressing or just take a sniff every now and again! A great way to make the summer stay a little longer! I also made lavender jelly with it! Makes a great gift."

Thanks Rita~ for a wonderful recipe share!!! <3"
"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!
Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap #28 November 2010."
"I also took ALL the ingredients and ground them up....Put in a Lock and Lock container right beside my coffee maker...I am a tea drinker first and this will be used all the time....THANK YOU....THANK YOU!!!"
"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!"
"This smells so amazing! I made one cup of it for recipe #411570 and I wish I'd made more. Thanks for sharing the recipe, 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!"
"Thank you so much Rita. This sugar is very yummy."
"This is really great. I love the smell!.. I think I will use this to make lavender cookies, cupcakes or even the lavender cheesecake recipe I see here on Zaar. Also, I wll remember this when I need a hostess gift. Thanks!"
"This is great! The heady aroma when you open the jar is so lovely and this really has a nice flavor. I added a spoonful to a cup of black tea with a little milk and it really flavored the tea nicely. A good idea for holiday gift giving as well, as this was incredibly easy. I used dried culinary lavender rather than fresh blossoms."
