Lavender Sugar

Isn’t it fun to be the winner of a blog giveaway?  I recently won a jar of Lavender Sugar on Donna's Designs blog.



I was surprised that this was not granulated sugar, but a powder.


Angustifolia Lavender is also known as English Lavender, or True Lavender.


I can see why it would make sense to strain the sugar before using it in tea, but I just added it right to the small teapot and then strained the tea into my cup.  Some little bits made it through the strainer, as you can see. 

The Lavender sugar gave the green tea a pleasant and delicate flavor.  I’d trying to decide what else to try this in next.  Perhaps some shortbread or a cake frosting.  Have you tried it yet?

I haven't tried the powdered lavender sugar. We are a lavender growing area so I have some around in the kitchen...the granulated kind with bits of lavender init...that I use in tea, on scones & muffins and yes, in shortbread. I love it!

That sounds good! I love the smell of lavender. I'm still experimenting with its taste in various foods.

I have not had the pleasure of trying this, but you certainly make it sound wonderful!
