Macedonia with Lavender Flowers
In Italian Macedonia means fruit salad with a sweet juice and it eaten in small glasses with a spoon. You can choose several different fruits or just 2 like I did this time: Peaches and Strawberries. The juice is always made with lemon juice and sugar, some people add a dash of white wine. We leave the Macedonia in the fridge for a few hours before serving to let the juices and flavours out. The juice will become pink or red, depending on the fruit. I added some fresh lavender flowers from my garden, and I absolutely like these colours together. Lavender is not poisonous and you can also use other edible flowers! Experiment!
