The Chocolate Lady from In Mol Araan is hosting the 92nd round of Weekend Herb Blogging27.04.2021 **. This week I used lavender to flavour ice cream. I agree with Kalyn, that too much lavender tastes like perfume, but the amount of lavender in this
Honey Lavender Ice Cream
was just right.

Bring cream, half-and-half, honey, and lavender just to a boil in a 2-quart heavy saucepan over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, then remove pan from heat. Let steep, covered, 30 minutes.
Pour cream mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl and discard lavender. Return mixture to cleaned saucepan and heat over moderate heat until hot.
Whisk together eggs and salt in a large bowl, then add 1 cup hot cream mixture in a slow stream, whisking. Pour into remaining hot cream mixture in saucepan and cook over moderately low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until thick enough to coat back of spoon and registers 170 to 175°F on thermometer, about 5 minutes (do not let boil).
Pour custard through sieve into cleaned bowl and cool completely, stirring occasionally. Chill, covered, until cold, at least 3 hours.
Freeze custard in ice cream maker. Transfer ice cream to an airtight container and put in freezer to harden.
· To cool custard quickly after straining, set bowl in a larger bowl of ice and cold water and stir until chilled.
· Custard can chill up to 1 day before freezing.
· Ice cream keeps 1 week.

You’re photo is spectacular! And the ice cream sounds good, too. A light lavendar taste would be very refreshing. I just bought some ‚lavendar-scented goat cheese‘. We’ll see…
I agree with Katie, this is really a nice photo. I’d have to have a taste of this, just to see if I liked the lavender in it. Besides, I love anything with cream!
Lavender, honey, and ice cream–this has to be wonderful, as long as the lavender is in the correct proportion.
What a stunning photo. It made me want to lick the screen.
I have the lavender – all I’m missing is the ice cream maker. It’s on my wish list and this recipe is definitely bookmarked.
Thanks for sharing.
I planted lavender this year and haven’t found any uses for it except in general herb mixes. This is a very intriguing recipe, and a beautiful picture!
