It’s always good when you are surrounded by Lavender blooms. I love this time of year. So instead of buying edible Lavender grow your own plant. It’s easy, it will come back year after year and there are so many delicious ways to use the flower buds. Here is just one of my favorite ways to use Lavender.
- 1 TB Lavender flower buds
- 1 cup sugar
Remove the Lavender flower buds from their stem by gently stripping them with your fingers. I like to store them in a glass canning jar. In a small air tight glass container add the lavender and sugar, shake well and place the lid on the container. Let them sit for 2 weeks, shaking a couple of times. Using a sieve pour the lavender sugar mixture out into the sieve. The sugar should fall through the sieve and the lavender buds should remain in the sieve. Discard the lavender and your sugar is ready to use. Sugar flavored this way has a wonderfully delicate lavender flavor and scent. Great in cold or hot teas and fabulous in coffee.
