Lavender sugar. Make this. But only if you like lavender. If you don't, you will hate this. And I don't want you to make things you hate. I'm obsessed with lavender. I love the smell but I also love that you can use edible lavender to scent and flavor just about anything. When the weather starts to turn colder, I love to use enhanced sugars in my coffee. So I decided to make lavender sugar instead of buying it at the spice shop. This lavender sugar recipe is super easy and your house will smell amazing.
You just need sugar and edible lavender. I found this lavender at Mother's Market but kind of had to look around town for a minute before I finally found it there. Whole Foods didn't have any (What the heck, Whole Foods?! I thought you carried all the hippie things.). But you can buy lavender sugar here. This little box of lavender has about 2 TBSP in it. And you only need 1 TBSP for this so maybe use the rest to make this lavender lemonade…But if you are going to buy it, and you like lavender, I suggested buying more so you have it on hand.
Finally, mix the remaining sugar and the lavender sugar from the food processor together with a whisk. Have I mentioned this smells really great? Because it does. It will take all your strength but you should probably refrain from burying your face in the bowl of lavender sugar.
It also would make a great holiday gift idea. Just add a little tag with some suggestions for uses and you've got yourself the easiest homemade gift ever. Mmmmmmmmmmmm. I'm going to go smell it right now. And maybe have a spoonful. But just one or two.
