I usually wear blue when I cook. Lavender isn't a favorite color.

Herbs de Provence comes to mind. Some versions of the mix include dried lavender.

I used lavender in a cream of radish soup last summer...I also steeped some in vodka (with rosemary). It was very good. I also use the dried seeds in shortbread.

Lavender's blue, dilly dilly, lavender's green. When I am king, dilly, dilly, you shall be queen.

Who told you so, dilly, dilly, who told you so? T'was my own heart, dilly, dilly, that told me so.





Could someone PLEASE tell me why I remember stuff like this?

Too much dill, dilly dilly.

Need to cut back on the pickles.

Thanks, now that song will be stuck in my head. As for cooking with lavendar, I would never have thought of it. What does it taste like? Hopefully not the way lavender scented stuff smells.

Actually, just a tiny hint is nice in herbs de Provence. I just wouldn't coat a chop or chicken breast with it. But there's so much more you can do with lavender.
