    Cookgirl's Note:

    The blooming season has ended for my lavender bushes but now I have dried lavender on hand and recipes ready to test! Try these nuts in salads, sandwiches, trail mix or serve as a part of a party tray. From The Lavender Cookbook by Sharon Shipley. Note: when I did "research" for this recipe online, someone mentioned that they spread the nuts on a wire rack to allow the excess sugar to drip off the nuts. Place something underneath the rack to catch the drippings-wax paper, paper grocery bag, etc. I did not try this trick as it was after the fact.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 cups walnuts (I used hazelnut halves because I didn't have enough walnuts on hand) or 2 cups hazelnuts (I used hazelnut halves because I didn't have enough walnuts on hand)
    • 1 cup unbleached sugar (reduced from 1 1/2 cups)
    • 1/2 cup filtered water
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon dried provence lavender
    • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary leaf, finely minced


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Spread the walnuts on parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake 5-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Alternatively, the nuts can be lightly toasted in a skillet on the range.
    3. 3
      In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the sugar, water, cinnamon and salt.
    4. 4
      (After testing this recipe the thought ran through my head of using half of a cinnamon stick. fyi).
    5. 5
      Over medium heat boil the mixture *without* stirring until it reaches 238 degrees (soft-ball stage) on a candy thermometer. Be careful with this step as the sugar syrup is very hot and will burn your skin!
    6. 6
      Remove pan from heat and stir in the lavender, rosemary and walnuts.
    7. 7
      Using a buttered spatula, quickly stir until all nuts are coated.
    8. 8
      Transfer the walnuts to the cookie sheet and spread them singly in an even layer, separating the mixture using the buttered spatula.
    9. 9
    10. 10
      Store in an airtight container or in a Ziploc-type plastic bag in the refrigerator or freezer.
