A favorite at our house is Tapioca Pudding, but a unique twist to that recipe is How to Make Lavender Tapioca Pudding.

The lavender plants in my kitchen garden have matured beautifully this year, and I love to scent my lingerie drawers and linen closets with lavender, so adding lavender to food recipes is another exciting way to enjoy this beautiful herb.

I infuse the milk in this recipe with a fresh lavender stalk and leaves, as well as adding some beautiful, dried lavender buds to the pudding mixture, so you get little bursts of lavender throughout the pudding.

I like to flavor other recipes with refreshing lavender, as well. Dried lavender buds can be found online from Neob Lavender @ NeobLavender.com.

I use Minute Tapioca, but any other kind of tapioca can be used.
