In spite of this crappy picture, I thought I'd add lavender to my crop week posts for a couple reasons. For starters, they're just lovely. Secondly, these are tasty little guys.
Case in point. My husband and I (well, mostly my husband) made this fabulous Lavender Chocolate Mousse Pie (new recipe post on my food blog) last weekend. I must admit that any cream based food item, infused with lavender, is about as close to heaven as one can get on this earth. I can still taste it. Aah.
I can think of few things that don't go well with lavender, either savory or sweet and if you don't like to eat them, you can always make them into soaps or just sit back and enjoy their wonderful fragrance in your lingerie drawer.
