Description

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.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 350 g caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of finely chopped fresh lavender (leaves and/or flowers)

Instructions

  1. Place the caster sugar in a bowl.
  2. Place your chopped lavender on a plate and press with the back of a spoon to encourage it to release its flavour.
  3. Add the chopped lavender to the sugar and mix well.
  4. Transfer the sugar and lavender mixture to a jam jar.
  5. Seal the jar and leave for at least 24 hours, and preferably a week, to allow the flavour to infuse into the sugar.
  6. 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.
