Lavender Festival Lemonade
Be sure to use culinary lavender when cooking, it has a lower camphor and resin content than the fragrance lavender. The fragrance lavender smells great but doesn't taste very good.
1 quart lemonade (fresh or from concentrate) 1 Tablespoon dried culinary Lavender 1 cup boiling water sprigs of fresh lavender, mint (optional garnish)
This would also be good with a little fresh mint, slightly crushed and added to the lemonade while mixing so it has time to mingle before drinking.
You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.
We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
