Lavender-Honey Ice Cream

READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
Recipe by ChrisMc

Here's an ice cream with a slightly more adult flavor - try this following a pork dish. This recipe does call for an ice-cream maker.

I love this recipe. The honey flavor is just right. The texture is perfectly creamy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Warm honey with lavender in a sacuepan (for best results, use one that is not aluminum).
  2. Taste after 5 minutes to judge the strength of the lavender flavor; if not strong enough, heat a bit longer (lavender is a very strong flavor, so be careful).
  3. Heat the half-and-half with cream in a saucepan (again, one without aluminum is best).
  4. Break up yolks in a bowl, then whisk in some of the hot cream.
  5. Return the yolks and cream to the saucepan and cook at low until the mixture coats the back of a spoon.
  6. Strain nto a covered container and blend in honey (discard the lavender).
  7. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, then freeze in an ice-cream maker as per the manufacturer's instructions.
