The delicate taste of lavender sugar is the perfect ingredient for use in baked goods or as an addition to your tea.

Make lavender sugar at home by combining 2 tablespoons of dried lavender buds with 1 cup of sugar in a jar. Allow the mixture to infuse in a cabinet for 1 to 2 weeks, shaking every day or so. After the sugar has absorbed the lavender flavor, strain out the lavender buds, and start using your delicious, gourmet sugar.
