One of my favorite times of the year is June and July because lavender flowers are in full bloom. If you have a chance to visit a lavender farm or grow a plant, it will satisfy all your senses, lavender colors, and butterflies, sweet fragrance in the air, sounds of bees, harvesting flowers, and tasting lemonade.
When cooking with lavender start out with a small amount and add more as desired. Adding too much it will make your recipe have a perfume or bitter taste. Lavandula x angustifolia is the best species for culinary purposes.
