Last July Friday: Lavender Summer Cream-making

In any given old Southern yard, figs are likely “coming on”. What better time than late summer to make lavender-infused creams for topping all kinds of great fresh fruits?

This Friday, we will be making lavender-infused heavy cream and demonstrating several, easy summer fruit recipes! Our demonstration will be at 11:00 a.m., in the Lavender Barn. Come out and enjoy some lavender cookery.

Our demonstration will be at 1:00 and will feature an herb vinegar how-to, with recipes.

PICNICS are available between noon and 1:00 p.m., $8.50 per person. There are numerous outdoor tables and spots where you can sit and enjoy lunch with a friend.
