Lavendula angustifolia culinary lavender. Use this as a cooking herb, or as an excellent herbal tea.
Lavender works well with rich chocolate, fruit conserves, syrups and cordials.
Add culinary lavender to biscuits and cakes, using one teaspoon to each cup of flour. Culinary lavender works well in savoury dishes too: add a sprinkling to transform roast potatoes, or make a lavender rosemary rub for roast lamb.
Our culinary Lavender has a sweet, floral flavor, with lemon and citrus notes. The potency of the lavender flowers increases with drying; use sparingly until you are used to the flavour as too much can be bitter.
