    From The Lavender Cookbook by Sharon Shipley. Try different varieties and colors of beets. I left the beets unpeeled but scrubbed them well.

      This was an interesting way to prepare beets. I did go and purchase the lavender buds at a speciality store. We found the lavender a little strong, next time we will use a little less lavender. But definitely something to try again. Made for ZWT6
