10 Fresh Ways to Cook with Lavender This Spring
Spring is the perfect time to try a recipe with flavorful lavender. Think: muffins, lattes, and more.
Where to Buy Lavender
Lavender isn't just for body wash and candles. But the secret to cooking with lavender is making sure you buy the right kind. Some lavender has been sprayed during the growing process and therefore can't be eaten. Look for fresh or dried product with labels that say culinary lavender at specialty grocery stores (Whole Foods or Williams-Sonoma) or at the farmer's market. You might be able to find lavender essential oil for cooking, too.
