“Culinary Lavender has been known since Roman times for its healing and soothing qualities. Our culinary lavender flowers, imported from the Provence region of France, are of the highest quality. Used for years in European cooking, Americans are now discovering lavender’s wonderful taste profile—it has the intriguing appeal of a good wine’s bouquet. Lavender enhances dishes from soups to desserts. Pannacotta, lemonade, tea, crème brûlée, vanilla ice cream are just a few desserts that are raised another notch with the addition of lavender.” ~ OliveNation website

Lavender Shortbread
This recipe takes my classic shortbread recipe and adds a new flavour and colour dimension, both natural, by adding Fresh Lavender. Processing fresh lavender flowers with sugar releases the natural oils to create a heavenly smell and colour of our beloved lavender, an herb thought of mostly for perfumes and now for our culinary delight. Close your eyes, and you will think you are in a lavender field!
