This is a delicious dessert that can be eaten alone (it's great chilled as a refreshing summertime fruit soup) or as a sauce for rice pudding, cheesecake, and so on. Make sure you use food-grade or mild sweet lavender. (Lavandula angustifolia or English lavender works well.) Blueberry concentrate can successfully be substituted for the sweetener--use 1/4-1/3 cup instead of 1/2 cup, or to taste. You can also make the recipe without sweetener and, after it is done cooking, add in agave nectar to taste. Watch the berries as they cook so they don't scorch.
