Bloomin' Good Gourmet Sugar

Nov 07, 2012

These gourmet sugars are infused with blooms.  I used lavender for it’s delicate taste, and hibiscus for it’s tangy, citrus flavor.  The flavors are wonderful!

Gourmet sugars are great in beverages, and make a wonderful garnish on the glass rims. They are delicious sprinkled over fruit, cereal, and yogurt.  Use in baked goods with endless possibilities!


To make gourmet sugar at home, combine two tablespoons of dried organic lavender (Lavandula spp.) or hibiscus (Hibiscus sabdariffa) flowers with two cups of sugar in a jar.  Allow the sugar to infuse for at least two weeks, shaking every other day, for maximum flavor.


Once the sugar is infused, you can remove the blooms by straining them out before using in beverages.  Or, if you prefer, leave them in and grind the mixture into a fine consistency to use in baking.

Enjoy your delicious gourmet sugar!
