Lavender Sugar is produced by allowing the flavour of fresh lavender to infuse into caster sugar which can then be used as an ingredient to bring a floral taste to cakes, biscuits, puddings and other dishes.
- 350 g caster sugar
- 2 tablespoons of finely chopped fresh lavender (leaves and/or flowers)
- Place the caster sugar in a bowl.
- Place your chopped lavender on a plate and press with the back of a spoon to encourage it to release its flavour.
- Add the chopped lavender to the sugar and mix well.
- Transfer the sugar and lavender mixture to a jam jar.
- Seal the jar and leave for at least 24 hours, and preferably a week, to allow the flavour to infuse into the sugar.
- When you are ready to use the sugar, you can either pass it through a coarse sieve to remove the herb pieces or you can leave them in the sugar.
