  • If using fresh lavender:
  • With thumb and forefinger, pull the flowers from the stems (discarding stems). If using dried lavender you won't need this step.

  • Bring the water to a boil, remove pan from heat and add the sugar/lavender mixture, stirring to dissolve sugar.
  • Cover with a lid and let cool for at least 30 minutes.
  • Strain out flowers through a sieve, pressing flowers to get out any remaining liquid.
  • Add the lemon juice and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, then freeze in sorbet or ice cream mixer.
