As you know..I love everything French.. and Italian.. and English.. :)
But lately I have been missing everything I saw in France and didn't bring home!:)
Small things.. like salts and spices herbs and cookies...and my wicker victorian trolley! Cookies like...(Rose de Reims...)..Lulus..the ones I cannot get here.. Macarons..etc..and Miel De Lavande..
Linda..showed me some salts and I started Googling..I have made a few..and will keep you posted..luckily we have Sel de Guérande here..
I also Googled making my own Miel de Lavande..
It worked and Poulet Provençal au Miel De Lavande is on the menu for dinner soon..I cannot wait..
All these projects were easy and fun and simple..
It is amazing how scents and tastes stay with you forever..the happier the occasion..or more flavourful the meal....the lovelier the memory!
The salt measurements I saw were 80% salt..20 % herbs..ap..and they varied site to site..
It's about what I did for the Rosemary and Thyme salts and already.. I clip the lid open and the aroma is divine!
The honey..I used 8 ounces and 3 tbsps of dried chemical and pesticide free lavender buds..and simmered over a bain-marie for 30 mins..then passed though a fine meshed sieve..bottled in these jars that I sterilized..and tasted today w/ J..Not overpowering..just the RIGHT scent I wanted.I was so happy to be able to recreate what I had witnessed in Provence!
I can't wait for my Lavender to come back to life~
The jars are from the $ store and the labels are actually gift wrap
Which you can download here:)
Have fun! I printed on standard size paper for the labels..Just cut the wrapping paper to size~
Thank You Martha:)
I would have preferred to add the text via my computer but didn't figure that part out..;0
