Here is a beautiful and easy gift giving idea for friends, hostesses, neighbors or just to keep in your own pantry - scented sugars! Infused sugars are delicious when added to hot tea, baked goods or on the rim of your favorite cocktail! They literally involve 3 ingredients, granulated sugar and
two culinary grade florals.
(Full Disclosure: This was an original Martha Stewart recipe I kept from the 90's!)
I made mine using glass spice containers with a clip lid, found at Marshall's, but you can find them on Amazon, the Container Store or even your local Walmart. Wash the containers and let them dry thoroughly. I let mine dry overnight. You don't want any moisture collected in the lid.
You'll need the following to make these wonderfully scented sugars:
Culinary grade Lavender
Culinary grade Rose Buds and Petals
Mix 1 cup of sugar to1 tablespoon of each of the florals.
Combine and Mix well.
I made a couple of batches to fill 8 glass containers.
I found it useful to use a funnel to fill the spice jars.
If you'd like to infuse a Vanilla Scented Sugar, the recipe is 1 cup sugar to 1 vanilla bean.
The florals will completely infuse with the sugar in about a week and lasts around 3 months.
Thank you for reading this quick and easy DIY!
I hope you'll enjoy these sugars at home and share this post with your friends.
(P.S. It makes your kitchen smell fantastic!)
