We made this in a "Cooking with Herbs" class I went to a few months ago. The lavender adds a wonderful taste and aroma to the honey. Drizzle over toast, scones, pancakes, waffles, granola....possiblilties are endless! This will fill your kitchen with such a heavenly smell as it simmers. I use it drizzled over my sour crean pound cake (recipe to be posted soon)
- Simmer lavender flowers in honey over a double boiler for 1 hour.
This was nice! I do suggest storing the honey upside down so to get only the taste of lavander in the honey. The buds do float to the top all together. So if you get to many buds it give a lavender soap taste. It`s just lovely in tea and over scones.
A thousand thank yous!
What a great way to flavor honey. I will try this with other herbs also! I strained out the lavender flowers after simmering, and put a fresh sprig of lavender from the garden in the jar for decoration. Lavender flavor is subtle, not overpowering. Would be a great item for a gift basket.
