I filled an order today for one of our most popular product, Organic Culinary Lavender. One dozen packages of our Organic Provence Culinary Lavender is going to a Culinary School in Ohio. Cooking with lavender can hold a certain mystique, and some say you need to aquire a taste for it. With my curiosity for cooking with herbs, I love to experiment the variety of different flavors. Whether it is garnishing a dessert with a lavender sprig, or a lavender-infused beverage, I just love incorporating lavender into my everyday meals for unique new flavors. My all time favorite is Lavender Scones, served with Vanilla Lavender Pear Jelly, and cream. Yummy! One of Joe’s favorites is Lavender Grilled Salmon or Stealhead. Enjoy recipes with the delicate, intriguing, and elusive, floral flavor of lovely lavender. That’s a mouth full:) !!!
Today I started shipping out our Valentine’s Day special Lavender Truffles and mallows. Can you imagine receiving a box of three different, decadent Chocolate Lavender Treats? Well, I can…test tasting has been my pleasure, and my hubby’s too! Culinary Lavender adds a lovely delicate floral flavor, and the aroma makes the “flavor play” happen!!! Each has a unique play of flavors that changes from when it first hits your palette. Chocolate Lavender with marianberry, or mint, or carmellows (Joe’s favorite), or dark chocolate covered
divine-divinity. The aromas play together and evolve with the tastes in your mouth. As we sample and enjoy these complex subtleties, we find it similar to wine tasting, except we never spit!
Today I made some Lavender Mint Shortbread dough. I wrapped it in saran wrap, and refrigerated it for a few days, so the flavors could meld together. I’ll bake them this weekend for a Breast Cancer fund raiser we’re doing at our lavender farm. This is my favorite cookie recipe. It’s a beautiful unique combination of flavors with Culinary Lavender and mint. I add 2 tablespoons Culinary Lavender “Signature Blend”, and 1 tablespoon mint to a simple basic shortbread recipe. Enjoy something special!!(check-out some recipes here!
