THIS VERSATILE BLEND WORKS ON EVERYTHING FROM LAMB AND CHICKEN TO SHORTBREAD AND CARAMELS.
Lavender Chicken. You can salt a chicken two ways, depending on how much time you have. If you’re going to cook in the next hour or two (up to 6 hours), make a brine - add ¼ cup Caravel Gourmet's Lavender Sea Salt for every 1 cup hot water (dissolve the salt) and 1 cup ice water. Take the pieces of chicken you’re going to cook, and add them to the brine. If you’re going to cook 6 hours or more away, then coat the pieces in a healthy sprinkle of Lavender Sea Salt, wrap them back up, and put them in the fridge.
Crispy Lavender Cinnamon Carrots. When roasting carrots in your oven, blend a teaspoon of Lavender Sea Salt with a teaspoon of cinnamon and toss to coat the carrots before roasting them in the oven for 40 minutes at 450F.
Roasted Lavender Cauliflower. The great thing about cauliflower is that it absorbs so much of the flavors you give it, and this salt is no exception. After cutting the cauliflower into ½”-thick pieces, toss them gently in olive oil, sprinkle both sides of each piece with Lavender Sea Salt, and bake them at 375F for 30 to 35 minutes, turning once.
Baked Lavender Kale Chips. One of many options we have for seasoning kale chips, Lavender Sea Salt makes kale chips that zing with Lavender-y flavor. Prep the kale as you normally would, toss with olive and the sea salt, and bake at 350F until the edges are brown.
Oven Roasted Lavender Sweet Potatoes. The sweetness of the potatoes and the savory flavor of Lavender Sea Salt are a perfect match. Chop the sweet potatoes into 1” chunks and toss with olive oil. Lay in a shallow roasting pan and bake at 425F for 35 minutes or until crispy, turning once. Sprinkle with Caravel Gourmet's Lavender Sea Salt and serve.
