This past weekend at the farmer's market there was a lavender booth. The family that owns the lavender farm, Thistledew Farms, were super nice and knowledgable. I ended up buying a small vial of culinary lavender and a big jar of bath salts.
She told me I could just put the lavender in my tea, coffee, and lemonade OR make lavender sugar. I wanted to share the recipe she gave me and a little step by step for anyone who has been wanting to try a little lavender in their drinks or food.
LAVENDER SUGAR RECIPE from Thistledew Farms
2 cups of sugar
1 tbsp culinary lavender buds
measuring cup/spoon, blender (or food processor, spice grinder), air tight container
Allow the mixture to sit for 3 days to allow the lavender to infuse the sugar.
My kitchen smells amazing right now!
If you don't have a lavender farm near you, you can order products straight from the Thistledew Farms website! The small vial of lavender buds that I used is only $2 if you want to try and make your own lavender sugar.

Have you tried lavender coffee? What did you think?
Let me know if you make this sugar, and what you think! I can't wait to try it in my coffee in a few days!
