CULINARY LAVENDER – TRY IT
100% AUSTRALIAN, NATURALLY DRIED ‘ENGLISH’ LAVENDER FLOWERS
Culinary lavender is the sweet dried lavender flower that has been grown to organic principles especially for cooking with. We have grown it, harvested it by hand, dried it in the Australian summer heat, sieved it six times and then packaged it into glass jars ready for you to impress your family and friends.
Cooking with lavender is just as easy as cooking with any other herb. Add the flavour of lavender to your recipes by using the dried flowers.
Add to: scones, bread, biscuits, casseroles, chutney, relish, ice cream, cordial and more.
Experiment with our cooking lavender in your favourite recipes. Remember that a little goes a long way, so do put the recommended amount in the first time.
Our Culinary Lavender is the variety that is best for cooking as not all lavender plants are suitable.
If you have a plant that you want to test to see if it’s OK to use, pick a flower head and squeeze – if you smell camphor (the ‘mothball’ smell) then don’t use it as it will taste bitter. Not sure? – just buy it from us and know you’ve got the right one.
Note: if you’re using fresh lavender then you may need to use a little bit more, just give it a go and adjust the next time. Remember – less is best to start with.
Store in a dark, cool cupboard or pantry. Keep lid firmly in place.
Grown in Victoria.
