From Garden to Table: Candied Lavender Wands Recipe

If you're looking for a clever edible garnish, try this Candied Lavender Wands recipe.


| June 2012


Add a delicate, candied lavender wand on the plate next to your favorite lemon cake recipe or in a sweating glass of iced tea. Kathy Gehrt's Discover Cooking with Lavender (Florentia Press, 2010) provides this edible garnish recipe that is as clever as it is delicious. This excerpt is taken from the chapter, "Sugars, Seasonings, Blends & More."  

Candied Lavender Wands

Makes 6 to 12 wands 

These sweet wands taste like candy. They make fun stirring devices or edible garnishes for iced tea or lemonade.

• 6 to 12 fresh lavender stems, with leaves removed 
• 1/2 cup lavender syrup
• 1/2 cup lavender sugar 

1. Dip lavender stems in the lavender syrup.

2. Roll the dipped stems in the lavender sugar.
