Lavender flowers are full of rich sweet
flavor and are especially nice when used with sweets. Add a tablespoon of
finely chopped lavender flowers to any sugar or butter cookie recipe or
add two tablespoons to any pound cake or white cake. This makes an elegant
addition to tea time. They are also good for butters and cream cheese
recipes. Use about 7 Tablespoons of chopped flower petals to one-half
pound softened butter. As with all edible flowers, pick when just
opened and not when starting to turn brown. Waiting even a day or two to
pick, can affect the flavor. It is best to eat only the flower petals. Do this by
pulling the flowers away from the little brown or green cap that holds them.
Lavender flowers can be fresh-frozen or dried.
