this has been a very warm and sunny week.
perfect to prepare this perfumed recipe.
try it in a simple green tea, it is delicious :)
Blossom Sugar
250gr of edible flower petals
I used roses,
elder (sambucus nigra)
poppies (for the colour)
some salvia flowers
750gr of icing sugar*
gentle clean the flowers and then pestle(crush) them
in a mortar together with
250gr of icing sugar.
it will become as a sticky paste.
then add the rest of the sugar and mix well.
put in small clean jars, and press well.
close the lids and keep the jars in a cool place.
if you want to give the blossom sugar, I suggest to dry it.
just spread it on a tray and let dry in the sunshine.
place it inside at nights.
it will take 2 o 3 days, depending on the sun.
watch out for ants..the just love it!!! :)))
then you can store it for months...
(in a dry place, of course)
could be a perfect Christmas gift, or not? :)

the icing sugar che be made by yourself:
but maximum 300gr of caster sugar (at a time) in your kitchen robot
together with one teaspoon of Maizena (corn starch)
give it some 30sec, and your icing sugar is ready :)
of course you can flavor it with vanilla or orange/lemon peel
I leave you with this photo of the hill behind our house,
which now is filling with poppies

have a nice week
se you at susan's :)
