Bloom report: this heat is waking everything up early. Our Lavendula Angustifolia “Big Time Blue” is ready to harvest this week for buds and will continue its bloom over the next couple weeks. Munstead and Hidcote Blue aren’t far behind.  What do we use it for? 

Big Time Blue lavender, is a true lavender or English Lavender. It is a type of culinary lavender that has a floral and intoxicating taste. It can add a rich, sweet, and floral undertone to dishes, similar to a spice, and can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. Some say that if you like the smell of lavender, you'll probably like the taste. 
In general, good culinary lavender has a spicy, minty quality and a sweet perfume, but not an overly perfumy aroma. However, the color of the lavender bloom is not an indication of its taste. But the color is amazing in arrangements! It’s my favorite English Lavender thus far. 

I use it in my cookies, sugars and lemonade. Yummy! 

This cultivar is also used for dried bundles,  sachets and essential oil. 

If you are interested in picking fresh we will be starting to harvest and will have u-pick on this cultivar this week. $10 a bundle
