Drying Culinary Lavender

The “English” lavenders, lavandula angustifolia varieties, are the sweetest lavenders both in character and in culinary quality. It is argued that many of the intermedias are just as good for cooking, but, we are entitled to our preferences! Experience has shown us that these sprawling beauties stay on the stem well, and hold their sweet ester.

This Friday, we will be cutting some of these while they are in their prime, and demonstrating drying techniques. We will be taste testing lavender chocolate powdered sugar and will show you how to make your own! Culinary buds will be for sale in the lavender barn.
