Lavender is a versatile herb, often used in both savory and sweet dishes.

  • A little goes a long way-it can be known to over power a recipe
  • Crush buds slightly with a mortar and pestle before adding to your recipe
  • If infusing a liquid with lavender, leave lavender flower buds whole
  • Cook with English lavender(L. angustifolia) or a mild lavandin
  • Lavender buds refer to dried buds, and lavender flowers refer to using fresh blooms
  • If using dried lavender use 1/3 of the amount recommended for fresh
