From Garden to Table: Cooking with Lavender

As if being beautiful, fragrant and easy to grow weren’t enough, lavender also delivers fresh, vibrant flavor. Unlock new culinary possibilities by cooking with lavender in your kitchen.

Soak or steep lavender buds in hot water, then remove the buds; the water or liquid will retain a hint of the flavor. Honey, applesauce or even vodka can be infused with the flavor of lavender in this way.
