    Allan Rees-Bevan's Note:

    Lavender ice cream's fragrance simply encapsulates summer. This ice cream is quite divine, and best served with raspberries and toasted nuts... or just on its own!

      Made this before and it really is lovely, very rich tasting. If you are going to experiment with Lavender, make this your first stop! It's one of my favourite ice-creams!

      Loved this, especially the aroma. The flavor was a little strong and my BF didn't particularly care for it. Would make it again and use approximately 1/2 the lavender blossoms and shorten the refrigeration time. I don't have an ice cream maker and the consistency came out wonderful. Thank you!
