  • Lavender Crème Brûlée

    by

    Although we think of lavender as a perfume, it also has culinary uses. Used culinarily, lavender exudes a nuanced peppery flavor, with a hint of intense aroma. Here the lavender is combined with a bit of vanilla bean to add a familiar background note to the unexpected flavor of lavender. It is especially attractive to garnish these custards with a sprig of rosemary, either fresh or dried.

  • Café Cream Crème Brûlée

    by

    Because cracked coffee beans are used to flavor the custard rather than powdered coffee, the custards remain classically cream-colored, but have the rich taste of cream-laced coffee. If concerned about caffeine, use decaffeinated beans.

  • Rosemary-Orange Crème Brûlée

    by

    The tart-sweet flavor of orange zest combined with the slightly peppery properties of fresh rosemary infuse the custard mixture with a subtle taste of the Mediterranean, where orange groves abound and rosemary grows wild. The caramelized brown sugar crust, the hallmark of crème brulee, cracks with the first dip of the spoon.

  • Fresh Strawberry Margarita

    by

    Skip the sugary mixes and blend strawberries, lime juice and a touch of agave syrup to sweeten this crowd-pleasing party drink. Agave syrup is sweeter than simple syrup, so about half as much is needed for sweetening beverages. Agave syrup and tequila are both made from the agave plant, so they are a naturally good combination.
