  • 3/4 Cup White Granulated Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Lilac Blossoms - about 2 big flowers - pick them in your garden or somewhere far away from roads and traffic
  • 1 small glass jar


  2. Remove single flowers from the branch and pluck them one by one into a small bowl.

  3. Place a couple of tablespoons of sugar in the bottom of a jar.
  4. Layer about a heaping tablespoon of lilac blossoms on top of the sugar.

  5. Repeat the layers, ending with sugar as the top layer.
  6. Put a lid on the jar and shake the contents. Repeat the shake every day for a week to avoid clumps. At the end of the week the flowers should be dried and the sugar infused with the lilac aroma. Strain the blossoms from the sugar if desired.
