“Supplies
Sugar, citrus fruit, glass container with seal, a zest and ribbon or twine to garnish.
Directions
1. Zest the fruit you want to use to give your sugar a touch of flavor. Leave it out overnight to dry.
2. Layer the sugar and the zest in a glass container. When you reach the top add some extra zest for color.
3. Let the sugar sit for at least one week before you use or hand them out as favors. This will give the sugar optimal flavor!
4. If you use lavender or espresso beans you can remove them by straining the infused sugar into a separate bowl before using it in a recipe or coffee. Or you can grind the beans and lavender to a super fine consistency and leave them in the sugar 😉 “
