Did you know that you can eat lavender? My godchild inspired me to this recipe. Prepared in less than 10 minutes. Love to surprise my hosts with it. Lavender has a distinctive taste with hints of mint and rosemary and has a calming and analgesic effect.
Ingredients (4 people):
- 1 liter of water
- 6 TBSP (60 g) raisins
