Delicate just-picked fruits from the framers' market stand a better chance of being really good than any fruit shipped from far way, assuring you of a flavor that needs little enhancement. Use fresh sweet lavender or dried lavender flowers.

14 apricots, halved
1 pt. raspberries, (or wild strawberries)

1 tsp. lavender, wildflower honey or granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. sugar
few drop(s) fresh lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 325 °F (155 °C). Choose a baking dish that is large enough to accommodate fruit in single layer and grease it.
  2. Lay apricots in single layer in prepared dish. Sprinkle lavender blossoms over apricots and drizzle honey over fruit. Sprinkle strawberries over fruit and coat very lightly with sugar. Carefully squeeze lemon juice over fruit.
  3. Bake just long enough to warm fruit and bring out its aromas, about 15 minutes. Remove and serve warm, plain or with a little cream.
