I have three colors of lilac on the farm, I find the deepest color makes the most outstanding color jelly. The normal lilac while be softer in color and the white one is almost cream in color.
I have a number of posts over the years making lilac jelly, its just amazing! Friends love getting it as gift, hubby calls it drool-worthy and I love to use it to make a light winter tea
But this year I wanted to expand my dried flowers for different uses.. so I did up a total of 18 trays, or dried three quart jars worth.
These will be used in a number of creative ways, in gifts like milk baths or sprinkled on top of cold processed soaps, or in herbal tea blends, a mix of cold process lilac massage oil and I am sure I can find a few more ways to use them though this coming year 🙂
