Lilac Flower Sugar

Lilac Sugar

Because I love lilacs, I tried to make lilac sugar with fresh lilac flowers. Last year I tried to infuse sugar with layers of fresh lilac flowers, but the sugar didn’t taste of lilacs. So this year I ground fresh lilac petals together with granulated sugar in a mortar. The sugar has a really pretty lilac color when it’s fresh. But as soon as the sugar is dried, it’s just brown, and even the fresh sugar doesn’t have a lilac scent or taste. For a lilac taste it works much better to infuse syrup or milk with lilac flowers.
