Lavender garlic paste

For a paste that adds the essence of the summertime in the Mediterranean to any dish, try this easy flavor spike. 

In a mortar and pestle, or in a blender, mash together 3 Tablespoons dried organic lavender buds, 3 fresh garlic cloves, 1 piece of candied ginger and 1 2inch cinnamon stick. Use fresh or freeze in an ice cube tray. 

Uses as a flavor hit for stir-fried vegetables, mashed or puréed vegetables and rice, pasta or whole grain dishes.

If you came to our garlic braiding class we had a sample of this on a dish of oven baked carrots drizzled with butter.
