Herbes de Provence This is a traditional seasoning widely used in Mediterranean cooking. There are many different versions of this recipe, so this is just one suggestion. I vary my recipe depending on how much of different herbs I have on hand. Use it to season lamb or poultry, in a honey glaze for pork or roasted turkey, and with roasted onions, garlic, and other root vegetables. I love sprinkling it on roasted potatoes.
Directions 1. Put lavender buds and 1/4 c of the sugar into spice grinder or clean coffee grinder and blend until mixture is powdery. (about a minute) 2. Add this mixture to the remaining sugar in a container with a tight-fitting lid 3. Allow mixture to sit for 3 days so that lavender can infuse the sugar
