Have you tried it in iced or hot tea? How about a nice ice cold glass of lavender lemonade?
Lizzy Lane Farm House Lavender Lemonade
1 tray crushed ice cubes
1/4 cup dried lavender
2 cups boiling water
3/4 cup organic sugar
8 organic lemons
5 cups cold water
Place ice cubes into a 2 quart pitcher. Place the lavender into a bowl, and pour boiling water over it. Allow to steep for about 10 minutes, then strain out the lavender and discard in the compost bin. Mix the organic sugar into the hot lavender water, then pour into the pitcher with the ice. Squeeze the juice from the lemons into the pitcher, getting as much juice as you can. I use my Grandmother's old glass juicer. Top off the pitcher with cold water, and stir. Taste, and adjust lemon juice or sugar if desired.
Pour into tall glasses, pull up a bale of hay and watch the chickens run around the yard, and relax! (well at least that's what I do, the girls are quite entertaining...)
