As you might remember, I was in Provence filming for #Kultour and I made some great turkey with lavender and I was actually in the middle of a lavender field.
During that episode, I showed 2 more recipes with lavender. One is Strawberry Lavender Marmalade and Lavender Butter.
I was so inspired by the marmalades on Stammershalle while visiting Bornholm, that I decided to make this spectacular combination of flowers and fruit.
Strawberry Lavender Marmalade:
1 Kg fresh strawberries
800 gr white sugar
Juice of One lemon
Fresh or dry lavender about 1 tbsp if dry and 2tbsp if fresh
Boil 1/2 cup of water and soak the lavender on that water for 15 minutes.
Hull the strawberries and discard the bad ones. Set aside half of the berries, and mash the rest up.
Put into a wide pan, add the sugar and the lemon juice, and bring to the boil. Add the remaining strawberries to the pan and the strained lavender water.
Boil for 30 minutes or until it reaches 105° C. Let it cool and try it out with some fresh buns or crackers!
250 gr butter
1 tbsp fresh lavender
Beat the butter until soft. Cut or crush in a mortar the lavender. Add salt and lavender. Mix and Enjoy!
