Culinary Lavender

Cooking with our edible lavender from Lavender Green

Sweet and savory for your culinary pleasures

On our organic lavender farm, we always reserve some of our harvest to blend culinary lavender seasonings and teas for your enjoyment.

The use of lavender in cooking, baking and teas is limited only to your imagination. Lavender has a sweet, floral flavor with lemon and citrus notes.

Since the potency of lavender flowers increases with drying, use 1/3 the amount of dried lavender in recipes that call for fresh lavender.

Lavender may be used in desserts, in savory dishes and in beverages like tea and champagne.  It is a relative of the mint family, so you can use it anywhere you might use mint and it mixes well with lemon and pepper, or other herbs like marjoram, oregano, thyme for “Herbs de Provence.”

Our organic farm-raised English lavenders “Munstead” and “Hidcote” are considered the sweetest and safest for cooking of all varieties of lavender. And we now introduce our newest variety of lavender buds: “Periwinkle Blue” for the sweetest lavender tea you’ll ever experience
