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
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
combine flavors. Add salt and pepper lightly to taste. Serve immediately.
