Last summer, we added a lavender plant to our urban garden. All summer long, it smelled so good on our patio and then winter came. We picked up the flowers not really knowing what to do with it.
Should I use them in my lingerie drawer, or should I use them in a recipe? As I love to eat, the decision was pretty easy to make! Haha #Foodie
Here is my recipe of lavender simple syrup. You can use this simple syrup to create a cocktail, or in your favorite dessert recipe, or even in your café latte, try this recipe!
