Herbal Sugars

Herbal sugars....just a reminder. Pictured, is the makings of a lilac sugar.
Herb and edible flower sugars are easy to make.
One of my favorites is mint sugar and just recently, elderberry sugar.
Take fresh mint that has been washed and dried and layer it in a jar with alternating mint and sugar. Put on your lid. Occasionally shake it up a bit and leave it for a few days. You can then pull the leaves from the sugar or put it in a food processor and blend it with or without the herb, to a fine powder.
I have also blended it and put it in a preheated oven and then turn it off. Letting the herbal sugar dry, cool and jar it.
The mint is especially popular. I've used it for years. It has helped my children with an upset stomach, nervousness and sometimes with PMS symptoms. πŸ’œ
I've enjoyed the lilac sugar too. Mildly fragrant and tasty.
It may be fun to experiment with some of your herbal harvests. This can be done with sage too and used in a couch syrup or in a salt sugar throat gargle. πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—
