Here’s what you can do with fresh cut lavender:
Dry it: Hang it upside down in a dark place such as a closet. In about 2 weeks your lavender will be dry and you can either display it, or rub the buds off the stem and use it as culinary lavender.
Display it fresh: If you put your fresh cut lavender in a vase it is best not to put water in the vase. The stem becomes moldy very quickly.
Bake or Cook with it: Fresh lavender is wonderful sprinkled on fruit, made into a simple syrup, or added to salads or soups. It is part of the mint family so is delicious in both sweet and savory dishes. A little goes a long way!
In the words of Thomas Jefferson:
“Cultivators of the earth are the most valuable citizens. They are the most vigorous, the most independent, the most virtuous, and they are tied to their country and wedded to its liberty and interests by the most lasting bonds.”
