I am looking for lavender that I can use in cookies and cupcakes. Where can I find it in TO or the GTA?
I buy bags of dried lavender at Lennie's Health Foods at the corner of Parliament and Carlton. Used it to infuse into cream for creme brulee.
Call Boncheff 416 233-6100. It will be cheaper there compared to the extortionate boutiques. Same goes for oils,vinegars, condiments, teas, fresh herbs, even food mags.
Where is Boncheff?
Boncheff--382 Olivewood Rd. Left at the 1st light south of the Bloor/Dundas/TTC overpass on Kipling.
You can get dried organic lavender in a small tin at the Spice Trader on Queen St.
Thanks everyone. I will check out Wholefoods tonight!
Also, Whole Foods usually has it in the fresh herbs section.
The flower market at the Queens Quay Loblaws has both regular and English lavender, as should most plant markets that carry herbs.
This source may be sprayed. Beware if it's in the flower section.
Nope, they are in the herb section, meant to be used culinarily.
I bought some from one of the basement stores at the st Lawrence market for some chocolate lavender cupcakes I made. But, it was pretty weak and another source might be better.
Bonnie Stern usually has it. You might also try calling Boncheff Greenhouses.
