Our home grown dried Lavender pots are a fantastic way to liven up your cooking and an often overlooked essential ingredient in the kitchen. Lavender is one of the finest and loveliest of herbs. It is also fantastic for cooking, though it is underused and somewhat misunderstood when baking.
Lavender can be added to salt and used to excellent effect with salads and new potatoes by tossing in butter. Though we prefer to cook it into a Victoria sponge cake and sit with a good cup of Earl Gray tea, it is rather lovely.
