LAVENDER SUGAR WITH VANILLA
This is wonderful just to open and sniff! Make four jars one with lavender and sugar put into a vita mix to make into lavender powdered sugar(Which is nice if you don't want lavender buds in your baking. Or to add to a cup of comforting tea), then jar two with lavender and the fourth put in a vanilla bean. Can be used in cake or cookie mixes, a cup of tea, in a frosting or glaze, salad dressing or just take a sniff every now and again! A great way to make the summer stay a little longer! You can also make the lavender jelly with it! Makes a great gift.
4 cups sugar
4 tablespoons fresh lavender flowers
1 vanilla bean (optional)
Place a cup of sugar in each (1 cup) jar along with 1 tablespoon lavender and divide the vanilla bean among some or all the jars. Let sit overnight.
