Lavender Sugar

Lavender Sugar
The flavor and fragrance of lavender is a wonderful addition to many recipes. Use in tea, sprinkle on top of baked goods or replace some of the sugar in your favorite dessert for a delicious variation.
Ingredients:

2 cups granulated sugar
2 tablespoons dried lavender
red food coloring paste (optional)
blue food coloring paste (optional)



Directions:


Place sugar and lavender in a large food processor and pulse several times to blend thoroughly.


If a pale lavender color is desired, mix a small amount (about the size of a match head) each of red and blue food coloring paste with a couple of tablespoons of sugar until the color is even and well distributed.


Store in a tightly sealed container for 1 - 2 weeks to allow the flavor and fragrance of the lavender to permeate the sugar.


Sift to remove lavender buds if you wish.
