Lavender Honey Custard Ice Cream

Categories : A List Desserts-Ices

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon culinary lavender buds
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 vanilla bean -- cut in half length-wise
10 large egg yolks
2/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

In a medium saucepan, whisk together the milk, honey, lavender, and 3/4 cup of the cream. Add the vanilla bean. Heat, stirring often, until small bubbles start to form around the edges; do not boil. Set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, combine the egg yolks and sugar. Beat with an electric mixer for 5 minutes, or until the mixture is a light lemony yellow and forms a slowly dissolving ribbon when the beater is lifted.

Slowly beat in the milk mixture. Pour back into the saucepan. Use a paring knife to scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean and add them to the pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and reaches 175 °F on an instant-read thermometer, (don't go above 180°F or the eggs will curdle).

Strain into a medium bowl. Place over a larger bowl containing ice cubes and cold water. Stir often until cool.

Stir in the vanilla extract and the remaining 3/4 cup cream. Transfer to an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's directions.

Thanks, Billy! I don't have any "culinary lavender buds", but he made a lavender extract, and some lavender sugar.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

Sure does sound good, Billy. So, did you go buy the 1 gallon ice cream freezer?
