It makes a big difference using fresh lavender. The aromatic oils fade fairly quickly, and if you use dried lavender the flavour tends to be somewhat musty. This sorbet recipe is one I have been using for eighteen years, since the hot summer of 1982 when I raided my mother's lavender bush and started cooking with flowers for the first time.
