Well... nothing like a blooper on live TV! Or make that, a blooper on a blog! So.... we learn together!
I have often made lavender sugar, vanilla bean sugar, and other flavors. Never had a problem. So what happens? I blog about putting a few lavender sprigs in a container of sugar. When I've done this before, I used dried lavender. But THIS time, I use fresh lavender. I tell you it's a good idea. Wrong. New plan.... don't put anything with a high moisture content in the sugar and seal it up. Look closely at the above photos.... the sugar crystallized on the lavender. There is moisture and little wet, sugary blops on the lavender. I caught this in time. There aren't any growies on there. I'm just going to take the wet lavender out and let the lid off for a day and see what happens.
From now on--- I'll use dried lavender in sugar to make lavender-flavored sugar.
