Blueberry Lavender Simple Syrup

Whether it’s over ice cream or in a cocktail, this Blueberry Lavender Simple Syrup captures summer in the Skagit Valley. For a burst of sweet and floral, we use ingredients from Bow Hill Blueberries and La Conner Gardens. Blueberries are ripe and ready from July through August. Bunches of lavender are in full bloom for much of the summer at La Conner Gardens. Each farm is open for Farmstand Fresh, a celebration of farms and flavors in the Skagit Valley.

Blueberry Production in the Skagit Valley

Did you know that the Skagit Valley cultivates 4,500 acres of blueberries? Our cool, maritime summers allow the berries to ripen slowly. Thus, they have more sugar. Which means that Skagit Valley blueberries are all the more sweeter for your Blueberry Lavender Simple Syrup!
