Lavender is available during the summer months.
Lavender is one of the quintessential ingredients in Herbs de Provence, a now classic French herb blend invented in the early 1970's. It is grown for both culinary and ornamental purposes, used primarily for its flowering buds, both fresh and dried.
Lavender plants vary as there are over forty different varieties within the genus Lavandula. Their one common denominator is their floral spikes. Bushy shrubs produce gray green stems and foliage with narrow slightly furred leaves. Tight floral buds arise in colors of blue, violet and lilac. The entire plant emits floral, sweet and distinct aromatics, though it is the flowers and leaves that are used for their culinary properties.
Lavender buds contain the essential oil of lavender, which is where the scent and flavor of lavender are best derived.
Lavender buds and leaves may be used to flavor syrups and sauces, and can be prepared both fresh and dried. Lavender pairs well with fresh sheep and goat's milk cheeses, sweetened cream, berries, citrus, olive oil, pork, lamb and seafood. Store cool and dry until ready to use.
Lavender is native to several different regions worldwide. Its native ranges extend across the Canary Islands, North and East Africa, Southern Europe and the Mediterranean, Arabia and India. Lavender is known as a garden escapee, growing in regions well beyond their original planting zone. Because it cross pollinates easily, there are countless unknown hybrid varieties.
