Ingredients

  • 6 lavender sprigs fresh
  • 2-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • lavender to garnish optional

Instructions

  • Wash the lavender and shake dry. In a pot heat the cream and lavender sprigs. Add the powdered sugar and stir until fully dissolved. Strain the liquid mixture and pour into a bowl.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, beat the egg yolks until foamy. Bit by bit stir in the lavender mixture. Pour this new combination into a pot on low heat. Constantly stir until a creamy texture occurs. Allow to cool and pour into a flat freezer-safe dish.
  • Place the ice cream into the freezer for about 4-5 hours. Stir every 30 minutes to allow the mixture to evenly freeze.
  • Garnish with lavender sprigs when serving.
