lavender licks

This is the Lavender-Honey Ice Cream from David Lebovitz' The Perfect Scoop:

I did consider adding a bit of lavender color, but in the end decided to go au naturel.

The dried lavender is added in two stages: first the honey is infused with lavender (for one hour), then the completed base is infused with lavender (overnight in the fridge). I was worried the flavor might be overwhelming, but it's really quite delicate.

Lavender-Honey Ice Cream and bright blue skies--a virtual holiday in Provence!


  1. There you go again with the tantalizing food. Meanie.

  2. Surprisingly tasty - a really good substitute for vanilla :)
