Lavender infused honey

on July 13, 2012

I just started growing lavender in my garden and have been looking for some ideas to put it to good use in my kitchen. I stumbled onto an interview with Kelly Ripa where she’s talking about some of her favorite foods and one of them is lavender infused honey.  I’m not going to say honey isn’t deliciously floral on its own, but I gave it a try by dropping just a bit into the honey jar (stem and all).  The results were amazing! The lavender perfumes the honey with a fresh, astringent aroma. It was lovely drizzled over yogurt topped with fresh blueberries and granola!

Another variation to try: a sprig of rosemary or a bay leaf!
