I follow a fabulous baker on Instagram called @thelavenderbakery. She runs a bakery in London called, The Lavender Bakery. Not only is she an incredible baker, but she's a lovely person as well. I recently shared a photo of my lilacs in full bloom (for the first time since I planted them 8 years ago) and she suggested that make Lilac sugar.
Well, the next day, I cut some lilac blossoms. I made a bouquet with some and transformed the rest into Lilac Sugar.
This is really more of a method than recipe.
First, I washed the blossoms and let them dry completely. Then I pulled the flowers from two full blooms and made sure there were no stems.
Next, I poured granulated sugar into a dry, quart sized container and mixed the blossoms in. I sealed it and put it in the cabinet. In a few weeks, I'll try making lilac sugar cookies, Lilac brioche, or maybe even lilac whipped coconut cream...
