The name lavender comes from Latin, meaning “to wash,” due to its clean, fresh scent. It has been used for its “healing qualities” by herbalists since ancient Egyptian times. The mellow flavor of this flower lends itself to cooking with lighter flavors. We’ve taken this a step further by adding sugar, for a sweet, cool flavor that can be incorporated into all kinds of baking. Try it on sugar cookies and muffins, or add some to tea.
