Lilac sugar

I can't even begin to explain just how much I love these flowers. They make me all giddy! They smell incredible, and the fact that they are edible make them even better. Making lilac sugar is super simple - all you need is lilac petals, sugar and a jar. That's it! A perfect way to preserve the smell of summer for months to come. It's also a perfect gift!

Lilac sugar
Clean, dry lilac petals (preferably purple as they are very fragrant)
Granulated sugar
A jar

Layer flowers and sugar in a jar. Let stand dark and cool for a few days, shake every now and then. Now your sugar is ready to use. Perfect for baking or in a cup of tea.
