Last year, my husband and I went to the local festival and found one of the vendors that had a lot of candies including caramels. One lady handed me a sample of a small caramel, I ate it. Whooo…I was like, “What was that?” It was incredibly delicious! I asked her about this, while my husband interpreted for me using his voice, she told me that it was lavender vanilla caramel. I was puzzled about how to make lavender vanilla caramel with the flowers or just the petals? It did not matter at all. So, I saw one of the lavender desserts from the Pinterest and figured out the “lavender sugar” in the recipe list. I told myself, how could I make lavender sugar? I typed in the Google search bar, “Lavender Sugar.” I found one recipe for lavender sugar but the measurements were way too much for what I needed. I reminded myself that I could not use lavender sugar for health reasons, or at least until my pre-diabetes goes away. Let’s make lavender sugar!
Homemade Lavender Sugar
What You Need:
1 tablespoon dried lavender buds (Culinary)
1 cup organic granulated sugar
1 glass frappuccino bottle
Combine dried lavender buds and organic sugar in the food processor (Unfortunately, I do not have a food processor; I use a food chopper.)
… Pour them in a small milk bottle like an old frappuccino bottle …
…Let lavender sugar sit and it needs to be sealed for a week in a cool place …
After one week, you can use lavender sugar for tea, coffee, or other desserts. I think that you will like this. Enjoy this!
** UPDATED: 6/9/2016 ** Please aware of that the lavender buds are not from the plants. Dried lavender buds are available in the grocery store or whole food market. Otherwise, you can place order dried lavender buds.
