OH, LILAC SUGAR

Lilac Sugar, Lilacs in Dom Perignon Vintage 2009 Bottle, missvoguevoyage, patricia petit, how to make lilac sugar, Lila sugar, floral sugar recipe, missvoguevoyage, Patricia Petit
I am quite of a domestic goddess. And as the current trend is everything floral, I thought it's time to share my yummiest, top-secret, garden-inspired burst of flavor. Everyone who knows me knows how much I am obsessing year after year over rose sugar, but this season I thought I need to try something new. As promised, come and check out my intoxicating recipe! 
Sweeten your life by nature. The following lilac blend takes 5 minutes of preparation time max, and it's pawlickingly delicious, it's earthy yet sweet. Everyone just loves it. Lilac dreams and High Tea, my foolproof floral-infused sugar. A perfect way to preserve the smell of spring for months to come.

LILAC SUGAR
INGREDIENTS

1 mason jar, preferably cute
100 grams of sugar
2.5 grams of lilac blossoms
     (adapt with rose or lavender)
5 days of patience minimum





















INSTRUCTIONS

1. Cut some wild pesticide-free lilacs, preferably Lila, as they are the most fragrant

2. Give them a good shake, or soak in water for about 3 minutes to get rid of any bugs. If so, dry thorough!

3. Carefully remove blossoms from the little green stems.

4. Layer sugar and dry lilacs alternately in cute mason jar. The more blossoms, the more intense, bien sûr!

5. Store sealed jar in a dark, cold corner and gently shake from time to time - daily.

6. Let time do its magic.

7. After a minimum of 5 days remove dried lilac petals from soaked sugar. Sift, if needed.

8. Voilà, floral-infused sweetness.
Use for tea, baking, syrup, or as a luxurious body scrub. Indulge and tell a friend!

  4. Thank you so much, Sandra! Yes absolutely. Rose sugar is actually my favorite floral sugar, but as mine are still lulled to sleep, I just have to wait a few more weeks for them to blossom. Tell me how you like the rose sugar, taste divine in green tea and on pancakes.
