Cooking with Lavender

Lavender offers plenty of uses; some uses that may be not as widely known. In addition to its aromatherapy and soothing functionality, lavender can be used on the kitchen, too. That’s right, cooking with lavender can enhance the flavor of just about any dish that you prepare! IslandLavender.com carries a variety of options to incorporate into your meals. Here are a few of the spices available:

Herbes de Provence

Herbes de Provence typically contains herbs such as marjoram, oregano, rosemary, savory and thyme. But more commonly in the American market, this blend also has a touch of lavender. The earthy blend can be used to flavor foods such as chicken, fish and meat. The mixture can be added during the cooking or beforehand to infuse the flavor into the food.

Lavender Coriander Rub

Containing lavender mixed with sea salt and coriander seeds, this rub is best used on meats and vegetables. If canning foods is your forte, this rub may be used as a spice during the canning process as well. The coriander seeds offer a warm and nutty citrus flavor. The lavender offsets the taste, creating a unique and savory seasoning!
