LAVENDER ICE CREAM RECIPE

 

LAVENDER ICE CREAM RECIPE

Ingredients
2 cups whole milk
1/4 cup dried lavender
1/3 cup honey
5 egg yolks
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup heavy cream

In medium saucepan, combine milk, lavender, and honey. Bring to gentle boil, cover, and remove from heat. Let steep for 5 minutes. Strain mixture while reserving the milk and discarding the lavender. Combine egg yolks and sugar in a bowl of an electric mixer. Beat on medium-high speed until thick and pale yellow, approximately 3 to 5 minutes. Meanwhile, return milk to the saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and stir in cream. Strain mixture into a bowl set in ice water bath and let stand until chilled, stirring from time to time. Freeze in ice cream maker. Serve with a sprig of lavender on top.
