For these hot summer days stir up some Lavender Honey Lemonade! Recipe at:
It's lavender harvesting season in our neck of the woods, and we have plenty of culinary lavender on hand especially since we went to an organic, U-pick lavender farm last weekend. In addition to making some fabulous lavender shortbread, I'll be making sure I have plenty of Lavender Honey Lemonade on hand for those hot summer days. If you live in the Pacific Northwest, head up to the Olympic Peninsula for North America's largest lavender event, the Sequim Lavender Festival , July 17 to 19, 2009. If you do go and harvest some lavender yourself, you can easily dry it by wrapping the bundles with rubber bands and hanging them upside down with a paper clip in a cool, dark room.
