    This recipe was adapted from Chef Revsin of Driscoll Strawberry Associates, Inc. You can find the lavender flowers in the herb sections of the supermarket. Or try 2 to 3 whole cardamom seeds in place of the lavender-lovely!

      WoW! I could skip the strawberries and get giddy on the syrup! I also broke my own rule and prepared this recipe for the folks at work before I tested it at home! Lucky for me, it was quite a hit! I did bring the sugar/lavender mixture to the boil then allowed the mixture to cool until slightly thickened. For garnish, I placed a sprig of mint on top of sliced strawberries and toasted sliced almonds, which I lightly crushed for garnish and served on the side. Such an easy recipe to prepare but very elegant! Perfect for serving this time of year! Thank you very much for posting this delicious recipe! cg ;)

      We enjoyed these delicious berries with a dab of cool whip for dessert, even though I think these would also be great for breakfast. We had enough syrup for three pounds of berries. Thanks for sharing this great idea for combining strawberries and lavender!
