Lavender Infused Honey



This heavenly lavender infused honey may just be the most versatile ingredient in your pantry.  With its pretty amber color and its taste described as sweet and lightly floral, its uses are many and varied.

First, there is the obvious and easy: stand in the kitchen and just eat it straight from the jar with a spoon.  This isn’t creative but is immediately gratifying and very delicious (actually decadent) especially late at night when your sweet tooth is driving your decision-making and telling you that lavender honey is what you crave.

Or you can smear the honey on your breakfast toast, eat a PB&LH sandwich for lunch (the best!) and mix some honey into your ice cream for your after-dinner dessert. We’d call that a day of delicious eating.

But now that you are all grown up, you know that there is a more sophisticated world of possibilities (all good!) when you are lucky enough to own a jar of our lavender honey.  You can add the honey to marinades and salad dressings to mix a touch of sweetness in with the savory.  Or, you can drizzle it on fruit for a delicious summer salad.

You can also use our lavender honey as a sweetener in your cake and cookie recipes (especially shortbread cookies, pound cake and muffins) and in your frosting recipes.  Go online and check out the many creative recipes using lavender honey or have fun inventing your own.

You can also add our lavender honey to your favorite drinks.  It’s especially wonderful as a sweetener in homemade iced tea and lemonade.  Since lavender is in the mint family of culinary herbs, lavender honey mixes seamlessly into both drinks with delicious results. 13.8 fl oz.
