I haven't tried this yet. Adapted from an article on lavender in cooking in "Yankee" magazine. The cook time is actually minimum standing time.

I`ve been growing lavender for years and this is the first year I`ve made so many recipes from it reviews are posted they are just delish. Does anyone remember those little tea sandwiches? Well that`s what I made using this delightful spread. Thanks Heather!
