Lavender Sugar

Lavender sugar is one of those condiments you can keep in your pantry to use when you need it. It can be used for baking to add a subtle floral taste to your cakes and biscuits. Or even add some to sweeten your hot cocoa.

I have the most beautiful lavender bush that was given to me by my friend Sonja. It is a Margaret Roberts varietal and it is flowering like mad at the moment. Not wanting to waste the beautiful buds I made a batch of Lavender Sugar. I love lavender so much that I have a lavender garden showcasing the different varietals. So far I have planted English and French and I hope to expand the garden one bush at a time. When ever we go to 96 Winery Road I pick lavender to put next to my bed.

These are my start to my Christmas Presents. You can make any herb sugar or salt using this recipe as a base. They make for lovely hostess gifts when you go out for dinner. I have several varieties of lavender growing in my garden. Each one flowers at a different time.
