Every morning should begin with tea. Festive teas are the best. This lilac sugar is the perfect addition to your mornings. As lilac comes into season why not ensure it'll last all year long. By simply preserving the gorgeous floral flavors of lilac in sugar it infuses the sugar with the most wonderful flavor. You'll never want to return to basic table sugar again.
Berry or Fine Sugar: if super fine sugar isn't available throw your regular sugar into a food processor.
Lilac Blooms: for a quart jar I used around a cup of blooms.
An Airtight Container
Simply alternate layers of blooms and sugar until you have either filled your jar. Once complete put the lid on the jar and shake until well mixed. Shake once a day for about a week to make sure the flowers dry evenly.
After one week strain the sugar to remove the blooms. Store in airtight container.
