How to Use Lavender

Are you ready for something a bit different? We love the use of lavender in the kitchen!

The famed French aromatic spice ‘Herbs de Provence’ has at its heart lavender and without lavender it simply wouldn’t be the same. Combined with the other herbs growing wild in Provence, such as thyme, rosemary, oregano, marjoram and savory, lavender gives a very special addition to so many vegetable and meat dishes. We love lavender added to sheep’s cheese when marinated in oil. MB 02-03 - Lavendel

Even award-winning cuisine has discovered the use of lavender in lamb dishes or desserts getting a slightly tart flavor from the delicate flowers. 

We suggest you try a lavender vinegar for crisp summer salads. Simply add a handful of lavender flowers to 750 ml white wine vinegar and leave in a cool, dark place for about two weeks. You can then strain the vinegar and pour into smaller, dark colored bottles.

Delicious!
