      Just finished churning this lovely, and absolutely delicious ice cream! I made this using Fresh dried lavender from French Tart herself. I placed 1/4 teaspoon dried lavender, a pinch of vanilla bean, in a blender along with the sugar using just over 1/2 cup blending till fine. Then add the egg yolks to the sugar and blended again. Adding to the hot milk. Which is just under a cup. 240 ml is 8 ounces or 1 cup. So as you expect I omitted the oil and extract because I used the real thing. ;) I find this to be very comforting and warming odd as that sound! A must try for you to understand! Thank you so much!!!!
