Lavender is well known for its calming scent. Many people don’t know that lavender buds also contain flavorful oils that can be used in cooking, baking, and making refreshing drinks.

Lavender lemonade (recipe below) is refreshing, but can be made even more delicious with the addition of a puree made from fresh huckleberries. If they aren’t in season, frozen huckleberries are a good substitute and available year round!

Lavender Tea Base
2 tbsp dried lavender buds per 1 quart water

Bring the water to a boil and pour over the lavender. Steep for about 10 minutes (depending on how strong of a lavender flavor you want). Strain out the lavender and reserve the liquid.
