Lavender Honey

A couple of weeks ago we were in Santa Barbara, CA where I had the opportunity to take a bicycle tour through the Santa Ynez valley.  One of our stops along the way was at Clairmont Lavender Farms, in Los Olivos, CA.  They had just finished harvesting the lavender a few days before,  so please check their website photo gallery to see the beauty of the purple lavender fields.  They use time honored traditions to extract the oil from the flowers and so their products are pure without any additives.  I have never had such wonderful honey in my life.  Needless to say I brought home several jars, and have been enjoying it with breakfast most mornings.

  1. There is a creamery here that makes lavender honey ice cream! It's to die for! Who knew how amazing those flavors were together?
