Lavender is a very versatile herb for cooking - it can be used to flavor both sweet and savory dishes, adding a subtle floral undertone. The lavender buds and flowers can be used to enhance both the flavor and the appearance of food...for instance, the dark purple buds of our English Lavender varieties can add a deep pink color to lavender lemonade and the buds decorate baked goods beautifully. Our culinary lavender is organically grown, cut by hand and carefully cleaned. Lavender used as a herb, works well to flavor fish, pork, chicken and vegetables. It also can be used to flavor desert recipes.
Remember that lavender is a strong herb and a little will go a long way in cooking! Experiment with your tastes or try one of our recipes.
