Lavendula angustifolia, certified organic culinary lavender. This makes an excellent herbal tea just as it is or can be used as a simple cooking herb.
Lavender is a member of the mint family and is close to rosemary, sage, and thyme. It compliments fennel, oregano, rosemary, thyme, sage, and savory.
Lavender marries well with rich chocolate, fruit conserves, syrups and cordials.
Lavender bakes well in biscuits and cakes, try one teaspoon to each cup of flour. The uses of lavender are limited only by your imagination.
This Lavender has a sweet, floral flavor, with lemon and citrus notes. The potency of the lavender flowers increases with drying so use sparingly until you are used to the flavour as too much can be bitter.
