Dear Local Savour,

What can I do with a ton of dried lavender? I’ve added it to Herbes de Provence and rubbed it on a strip loin roast with success but am otherwise at a loss.

Hi Clay! Great question. In addition to using it around the house for it’s calming qualities such as adding it to your bathtub or throwing some in a little pan with some water to simmer for the relaxing aroma, try making a brown butter sauce with it. Brown the butter and finish with a sprig (or two) then pour over fish or pasta. You can also check out this Meyer Lemon Cookie Recipe with Lavender http://localsavour.com/2012/12/day-two-12-days-of-holiday-cookies-meyer-lemon-shortbread/ you can use that “drizzle” on cookies and cakes. Don’t forget there’s always lavender tea. Hope these ideas help – Enjoy!

Ok, you have my attention. How many delicious plank recipes do you think could get away with before a I got in touch?

So, I’m a hug fan. And we would love to have you try out a couple of our small-batch products. I left a link to my website, so check it out.

Can I send you some of our stuff for you to play around with- we’d love to have you post a celeb chef guest blog, if you are interested.

I wanted to make your “Warm Custard Spoon Bread” (recipe at Food52.com) this Saturday and I wonder if it can be made ahead. If yes, how long, and should I just reheat it before serving?


evh March 27, 2014

Hummm… I’ve never made it ahead of time ~ I bet you could though. I would cook it just until it’s almost done (about 7 minutes less) so it doesn’t dry out when you reheat it. Let me know how it goes ~ enjoy! 🙂
