I love lavender, Both in my garden and in some of my recipes. I have quite abit of Spanish,English and french lavender that I grow. In August I picked the flowers and some of the leaves and steeped it in some high grade honey for about an hour on very low heat. I then cooled it and put it in air tight jars in my celler. well I just finished my first cup of lavender honey tea, Pretty good stuff, I have paid a small fortune for lavender honey in the past. I use it with duck,pork Venison and the like.
