Cooking with Lavender – Marinades for BBQ Meats
Marinades for BBQ Meats
Mix 4 tbsp olive oil with 5 drops of Kentish Lavender Cooking Essence or Rosemary Cooking Essence – Hot, one crushed garlic clove plus salt and pepper. Brush on lamb, beef or chicken before cooking on the BBQ and sprinkle with lavender flower heads or sprigs of rosemary.
Use the same rosemary or lavender marinade for roasting vegetables or potatoes. Par-boil medium-sized potatoes with skins for 5 minutes, cut in half, brush with the marinade and roast on the BBQ (or in the oven) until cooked through. Sprinkle with lavender flowers or rosemary sprigs for the last few minutes of cooking.
Mix 4 tbsp olive oil (plus an optional 2 tbsp lavender honey) with 5 drops Kentish Lavender Essence – Hot, the juice of half a lemon, salt and pepper. Brush on chicken before cooking on the BBQ or baking in the oven.
