from the kitchen - lavender's blue...

Hello lovelies, I thought I would pop in and share something sugary and flowery for your Tuesday afternoon. I made up a couple of jars of flavoured sugar for some baking fun (that I'll also be sharing later this week):

I've actually seen cookbooks that include 'recipes' for these, but I'm sure you don't need a whole long spiel. Layer your flavourings (in this case dried lavender and vanilla pods) in a jar of caster sugar, leave for at least a week and enjoy in anything that could use some subtle flavour.

The vanilla sugar is lovely in a latte and I will be using the lavender one in some cookies later this week. Oh and a couple of beautiful jars with neatly layered ingredients would make a really sweet Valentine for a foodie friend.


  1. love how you've packaged these - so cute! i've been meaning to try making vanilla sugar. thanks for the reminder :-)
