  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lavender flowers, stripped from their stalks

Directions

  1. Combine lavender flowers and wine in a small bowl; leave in a warm place for about 15 minutes to allow the flavour to develop.
  2. Using electric mixer, beat cream until stiff and glossy; gradually mix in strained wine with half the sugar.
  3. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form; beat in remaining sugar.
  4. Using metal spoon, fold egg whites into the cream with extra lavender flowers; spoon mixture into a freezer container and freeze 3-4 hours, or until just firm.
