Infusing herbs into sugar

I have a sweet tooth. And, my husband Chris is always delighted when I bake. While I try to find fairly healthy recipes, I also like to “herb ’em up.”

Here’s a cup of sugar with about a half a cup of chopped rose geranium. I can either sift out the green bits before I bake, or leave them in.

This infused sugar will be going into a rhubarb buckle recipe. Layer herbs and sugar and shake to bruise and release the oils in the leaves or petals.

Great herbs to try: lemon balm, bee balm, spearmint, rose petals, or violets. You may already be thinking of others!

Life can be so sweet.
