Beautiful purple buds with that signature calming scent, lavender has a wealth of culinary uses outside of its traditional place in the aromatherapy and homeopathic worlds. Floral, with hints of rosemary, mint, and lemon, lavender is delicious in moderation steeped into tea; simmered into a syrup for lemonades or cocktails; blended into chèvre or butter with honey; or baked into cakes, puddings, or shortbreads.

Roots to River Farm

New Hope, PA

Female-owned and operated, founder Malaika Spencer fell in love with farming early on in life, and dedicated herself to learning how to restore overworked land and ecosystems while providing the most nutrient dense produce possible. Because of this, Roots to River Farm aims to transcend the economic, ecological and cultural devastation created by the industrial agriculture system by providing high quality certified organic produce directly to its local community. They believe that good farming is a public service, and want to provide a product that is of the highest quality, the most nutritious, beautiful and affordable while also offering a connection between consumers and the farm. In addition to being certified organic they utilize resilient agricultural techniques such as reduced-tillage, intensive cover cropping, integrated pest management, occultation, contour tillage, and organic compost applications to create a farm that provides the community with incredible food while also nurtures the soil and ecology of our farm and the people who work there.

Store lavender in a vase of water on the counter for up to a week, but use it as soon as possible for the strongest flavor and fragrance. Dry for longer storage.
