Thank you so much for the birthday wishes yesterday! I'm always surprised that so many of you remember.
Anyway, on the weekend Wille and I made some homemade edible gifts. Vanilla sugar and lemon salt.
It’s super easy and smells divine while you make it.
For the vanilla sugar you scrape the seeds out of a vanilla pod and mix it (the pod too) with about a cup of sugar in a blender. Strain and pour the vanilla flavored sugar into a jar. For our three jars we also cut an additional vanilla pod in three and put one piece inside each jar with the sugar.
For the lemon salt you zest a lemon. We used a zester and also a micro plane so we’d both get pretty long strips along with finer zest and then we let it dry over night. The next day we mixed the zest with sea salt flakes and poured it all into jars.
Simple and pretty gifts.
