Lavender Marinade

Lavender is well know for its medicinal properties, uses in body care and sweet smelling insect repelling properties, but did you know it is also a meat tenderizer?  I don’t eat meat, but have a friend who is a butcher.  Initially he thought I was crazy, but tried it anyway, and was so  happy with the result he now sells it in his shop as his ‘secret recipe’
