How to Cook with Lavender

  • Firstly, you want to be certain that you purchase ‘culinary grade’ and/or organic fresh lavender or dried lavender buds to ensure that it hasn’t been contaminated with toxic chemicals.

  • The English variety of lavender is best suited for cooking with. While still safe and edible, Spanish and French lavender is more well suited to bath and body products.

  • Dried lavender is more potent in flavor than fresh lavender.

  • 1 teaspoon dried lavender buds = 3 teaspoons fresh lavender buds.

  • Lavender makes a suitable substitution for rosemary in many recipes.

  • Whether fresh or dried, the leaves, buds, stems and flowers are all wholly edible.

  • You can add fresh or dried lavender buds to dishes and enjoy whole or strain/pick out before serving.

  • Infusing dishes with lavender can quickly become a bit overwhelming taste-wise, go easy and sparingly to start. It can greatly enhance dishes when used subtly. If you go overboard, a dish will taste bitter.

  • Lavender adds a great pop of flavor to both sweet and savory dishes alike.

  • Lavender makes a beautiful edible floral garnish when sprinkled on baked goods and salads.
