Delicious Lavender Honey Ice Cream for a sweet and refreshing treat.


2 cups heavy whipping cream

1 cup half-and-half

⅔ cup honey

2 tablespoons dried lavender flowers

2 eggs

⅛ teaspoon salt


1. Heat heavy cream, half-and-half, honey, and lavender flowers in a heavy 2-quart saucepan, stirring occasionally, until cream just starts to bubble.

2. Remove from heat and cover; let steep for 30 minutes.

3. Strain cream mixture into a bowl using a fine-mesh sieve. Discard lavender flowers.

4. Clean saucepan and pour strained cream mixture back in. Heat over medium heat until hot, about 5 minutes.

5. Whisk eggs and salt together in a bowl. Whisk in 1 cup hot cream in a slow stream.

6. Pour egg mixture into the remaining hot cream in the saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until custard coats the back of the spoon and reads 175 degrees F (80 degrees C) on an instant-read thermometer, about 5 minutes.

7. Pour custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl. Let cool completely, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. Chill, covered, for at least 3 hours.

8. Freeze custard in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions, about 20 minutes. Transfer to an airtight container and place it in the freezer to firm up.
