Savory Roast with Lavender
Meat is wonderful seasoned with lavender. One of my favorite ways to cook a pork roast is to insert garlic cloves into the roast (and this works with beef as well) and then roll the roast in a mixture of flour, salt, pepper, and a handful of loose lavender flowers. Go light on the flowers at first. A little goes a long way! Bake at 325º until the roast tests done.
