Making your own sugar cubes may seem like a bit of a faff, but I can assure you it is completely worth the effort!
Lavender sugar cubes have a huge variety of uses, you can add them to a celebratory glass of champagne, flavour your tea or even pop them into a nice glass of home made lemonade.
Lavender is incredibly delicate and fragrant, which is one of the reasons it works so well with sugar. The lavender syrup will take the edge off of the sweetness of the sugar while adding a wonderful flavour.
Now onto the fun part, how you too can create these sweet, fragrant little sugary gems.
4tbsp Lavender Syrup
1 ½ cups pure cane sugar
Cover a jelly roll pan with parchment paper.
Heat the syrup in the microwave for 20 seconds.
Pour syrup over the sugar.
Use a fork to combine the sugar and syrup. It should be grainy, kind of like fluffy sand. If too wet add more sugar. If too dry, add more syrup to get correct consistency.
Pour on to pan. Using only about ¼ to 1/3 of the pan, pack sugar in to a rectangle. Using a bench scrapper or knife, cut sugar into ½” squares.
Allow to dry for about 40 minutes. Then carefully pull cubes apart and allow to dry for another hour or two.
