I want to give this more stars!!!! My favorite sort of recipe--very simple and totally capitlizing on getting the most out of the combination of a few fresh things. I lucked into lots of fresh lavender and this is a wonderful use for it. The sauce is sweet but not too sweet, perfumed but not 'perfumey' and the touch of lemon makes it come together perfectly. I have some fresh blackberries and may just have to make this sauce again...Many thanks, CG!
