(Tardy) Edible Flower Friday: Lavender

I know, I know...it's not Friday anymore. I missed the boat on posting about my edible flower pick this month. Last month. So, here we are. Just two days late.

I had read about the Lavender Festival in Carmel Valley and dragged the family over there. There wasn't much in the way of lavender, sadly. I mean, they had lavender soaps, massage oil, and even tea. But I had been hoping for some lavender foods for culinary inspiration. No such luck.

Here's a round up of a few of my recipes, using this aromatic flower.


I make these for a quick appetizer. Rub,wait, grill. Doesn't get much easier that that.


In our tabletop travel to Croatia, Riley made a chicken dish with lavender and prunes.


And for your sweet tooth...


Enjoy! And if you have any great lavender recipes to share, let me know. You can email me at constantmotioncamilla [at] gmail [dot] com.
