Use fresh lavender leaves if you have them in the garden; if not, substitute dried lavender. Garnish with lavender flowers. For a different flavour, use 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary in place of lavender.

Servings: 4


¼ cup white wine

3 tbsp. granulated sugar

2 tbsp. chopped lavender leaves or 1 tsp. dried

½ cup whipping cream

6 cups raspberries


Bring wine, sugar and lavender leaves to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes or until mixture is syrupy. Let cool.

Whip cream and syrup together until cream thickens and holds its shape.

Place raspberries in 4 pretty dishes and top with lavender cream.
