Combine dried lavender from your herb garden with sea salt to make a fragrant rub for chicken, fish, or lamb. Cut lavender flowers just before they're fully open; tie them in a bundle, and hang it upside down for a week to dry. Remove flowers from stems, and chop. Combine 2 1/2 teaspoons chopped lavender with 1/2 cup fleur de sel or coarse salt. Package in an airtight container; if giving as a garden gift, attach a note to the recipient.
