Lavendar-Infused Strawberry Jam
Make a typical Crème Brule recipe but in the bottom of each ramekin, place a tablespoon of the Lavender Infused Strawberry Freezer Jam and top off with the Brule mixture. Bake as directed. Once cooked and cooled, caramelize the top as described in the recipe and garnish with candied pistachios, fresh strawberries and lavender sprigs. A simple dessert with a big “WOW” factor!
