Lavender Details

World Flavors

Native to the Mediterranean, lavender is mainly cultivated in France and England but grows all around the world. Lavender has a sweet, floral aroma with a hint of mint and citrus. The flavor matches that aroma with just a touch of bitterness.

"Lavender's blue, dilly dilly, lavender's green; When I am king, dilly dilly, you shall be queen." -'Lavender's Blue', from Mother Goose's Melody (Anon.), 1781

Lavender has uses both in the kitchen and in potpourris. Use lavender in desserts like cakes and ice cream or add as a unique flavor to vinaigrettes and marinades. Lavender can be rubbed on poultry before roasting for exquisite flavoring. We use lavender in our version of Herbs de Provence. Lavender is strong, so it is best to use a light hand.
