Fresh Lavender Flowers
USDA Certified 100% Organic
English Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia) has 2-5 inch flowering inflorescences that range from light lavender to dark blue or purple. The whole flowering head can be used as a garnish, or buds and petals can be stripped off and added to dishes to impart a subtly sweet, floral flavor. Lavender can be used in nearly anything, as it goes well with both sweet desserts and savory dishes such as rice, lamb, rabbit, chicken, or on cheese platters.
Use in small amounts to start, as it has a heavy flavor that can taste soapy and bitter in large quantities. Medicinally, it is antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, so both fresh and dried flower heads can be infused into a soothing and relaxing tea. Topically, it works well as a facial steam or in baths to soothe skin.
PLA clamshells and containers are fully compostable.
