2002 Award Winning Recipe!
Georgia Thurman, Hanover, Illinois

We love the unusual combination of blue potatoes and lavender in this savory, heart-warming recipe. A Master Gardener, Mrs. Thurman has kept the ingredients without measurement: "this recipe can not be precise: only one's palate knows the right proportions." It is a startling, beautiful presentation.

Garlicky All Blue Potatoes with Lavender

  • All Blue potatoes
  • Garlic cloves, crushed
  • Olive oil
  • Lavender blossoms
  • Optional: Coarsely ground sea salt and cracked pepper

    Steam or boil quartered potatoes until fork tender. Drain. Sauté crushed garlic until almost golden in olive oil. Drizzle garlic olive oil over potatoes and add a "goodly" amount of lavender blossoms; toss gently yet thoroughly to combine flavors. Add salt and pepper lightly to taste. Serve immediately.
