My online friend Jitka sent me some fun treats!
We were talking about lavender back when I picked bouquets
of it in my yard and hung them to dry in my studio.
She sent me edible lavender for making tea and a
lavender milk chocolate bar!
The chocolate got a little soft somewhere along it's journey.
It is summer after all! But not too bad and it was nice and solid
again by the time it got to Ohio. I must say that this is delicious!
We all know how lavender is good for relaxing and I actually did
feel that as I ate it. I'm trying to ration out the little squares.
haha....have a few more to go before it's all gone!
I made tea with the edible buds. The smell was wonderful!
My first cup was a little too strong but I got it right after that.
It is a great thing to drink before bedtime!
You get carried off to sweet dreamland!
And I'm thinking it could be steeped in milk and used to
make ice cream. Wouldn't that be delicious?
I'll have to put that on my To Do List. Yum!
Thank you so much, Jitka!
This was a fun treat! You'll have to tell me something
from America that you would like to try.
I saved your address!
