Thanksgiving Day Breakfast Idea

November 21st, 2012 by victor

Culinary LavenderHere’s an idea for breakfast on Thanksgiving (or any day) – Banana Blueberry Muffins with Lavender. Found it on allrecipes.com. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/banana-blueberry-muffins-with-lavender/detail.aspx. The recipe was contributed by Suzanne Hale and she says “These muffins are some of the best I’ve ever tasted. The lavender gives the flavor a slightly fresher taste, bringing out the vibrancy of the blueberries. You’ve got to try it! Serve warm with soft butter, if desired.”
Here’s an idea for the bird found on Country Living. It’s called ‘Provencal Rub for Roast Turkey’ http://www.countryliving.com/recipefinder/provencal-rub-turkey-seasoning-recipe

Speaking of tasty recipes, I had an opportunity to spend some time with Kathy Gehrt this past week at the Ontario Lavender Conference. She authored the book Discover Cooking with Lavender. I’ve been looking through it and it’s full great recipes. I’m particularly looking forward to trying her Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Garlic and Herb Crust. Makes me hungry just thinking about it. This is one book you should have in your kitchen library.

      Hope all of you have a Great Thanksgiving.

 

 

Lavandula Angustifolia – Folgate

March 13th, 2012 by victor

Find Folgate At Victor's Lavender Farm Beginning in April

Find Folgate At Victor's Lavender Farm Beginning in April

A tiny bush that packs a big wallop. This variety of English lavender is one of the best oil producers and is considered the best for producing high-yield crops for culinary uses, etc. Folgate is a tiny bush with narrow, small leaves and a sweet aroma. If you like cooking with lavender or enjoy the sweet smell in potpourri and sachets you will love this plant. Ever thought about Lavender Latte? Or Tea? How about Lavender Ice Cream. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination. Plant some in your garden and see for yourself.
