Here is another recipe that Jen and my brother made. It is a Simple Syrup that can be added to just about any liquid recipe. She said that she put a Tbl spoon into her hot chocolate and it was delicious.
The Suburb Experiment: August 2010: "Lavender Simple Syrup
"My in-laws have a lavender farm and business named Lavender Hill. They sell all kinds of neat products and if you don't live in Utah you can purchase items through their website. I highly recommend the Lavender Aloha tea.
My husband also grows three different varieties in our yard so you can imagine the amount of lavender in our house. It's great to use the ready-made products but it's also fun to see how creative we can get with just the buds. Today I'm making a lavender simple syrup to use this weekend when the temps are supposed to be in the 90's. Ugh.
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
3 Tbl fresh or dried lavender flowers
Bring water and lavender to a boil in saucepan. Stir in sugar until dissolved, remove from heat. Refrigerate for at least 1 day but recommended 3 days to let the flavor infuse before using. Strain before using.
We're going to make lavender Italian sodas (and possibly a martini or two). Yum! We've also discussed using it in other mixed drinks or in lemonade. I'll let you know how it turns out!"
