Lavender – how to use it

Lavender_French_10gA little bit about our Lavender…

Delicate purple-blue flowers of fragrant French Lavender give intense sweet floral flavours with notes of citrus and mint.
The flowers should be used sparingly due to their intense flavour. A lovely ingredient for baking, especially in shortbread and cupcakes, they can also be used in many dessert recipes.
Lavender is also fantastic in savoury dishes, particularly good with lamb and chicken. It can be used as a culinary decoration too.
And of course, it is often used to fill hand-made lavender bags for scenting drawers and wardrobes!

How to make Lavender Sugar… Mix 1kg of sugar with 2 teaspoons of lavender flowers and store in an airtight jar for up to 6 months.
