We love popcorn, flavored, unflavored and have it nearly every night. When our kids were young we ended up calling in mom corn. Yup...you can guess who liked it the most. We still like to play around with favorite flavors. We think you'll like this version as much as we do!
Sweet Lavender Popcorn
1 cup lavender sugar
1 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp water
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
8 cups popped popcorn
In a small pan combine lavender sugar, butter, water, salt and stir over medium high heat until it simmers, stir continuously for all sugar has been dissolved, let simmer for about 3 minutes more. Remove from heat and add cream of tartar stirring until combined. Drizzle over popped popcorn, stir until all pieces are coated. Place popcorn on wax paper and let cool and then serve.
This is so easy with our lavender sugar, but if you have your own culinary lavender buds you can use plain sugar and add 1 tsp ground lavender to replace the lavender sugar.
Enjoy and if you make it #norwoodlavenderfarm we would love to see your popcorn night!

Oh, I get giddy over fudge and this is such a simple and delicious fudge that can be made in 3 minutes! Seriously...3 minutes!
Fudge always makes me think of my grandpa. When ever we were kids visiting with my grandparents and my cousins my grandfather would make us fudge over the cookstove! Yes, they actually had one in their kitchen along with a conventional oven. He would stir and stir...felt like it took forever. The funny thing is that it never got firm...or we never let it get firm. We called it, spoon fudge! My cousins and I would gather around with our spoons devouring it. What great memories! My grandpa has been gone a long time now, but this recipe is for him...he would have loved it and would have gotten the spoons out for us!
3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1 (12 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cups walnuts (optional)
1 tsp Lavender Extract
In a microwave safe bowl combine chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. Place in microwave for 60 seconds, stir and microwave for 60 seconds more.
Line a 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper.
When your chocolate chips have completely melted give it a quick stir and add nuts and 1 tsp Lavender Extract. Stir to combine and pour into your prepared pan.
Let it sit and cool or get out a spoon!
If you make it give us a little tag at #norwoodlavenderfarm we would love to see it!
Go out and be inspired with lavender!
Lavender sugared nuts are perfect to have around for munching on, putting on top of desserts, or even sprinkled over salads. We like to make them up and add to a cute jar and give as a hostess thank you.
