Organic Lavender Sticks - As another step in our mission to reacquaint culinary enthusiasts with the versatility of Lavender, an herb once far more popular than rosemary, use Organic Lavender Sticks as skewers for grilling seafood, especially scallops. Alternatively, soak in water for a couple of hours and then throw on the coals immediately before placing chicken or fish on your BBQ grill. You will be amazed at how dramatically the lavender enhances the flavor.
