Sunday Slow Scoopers: Lavender-Honey ice Cream


I was slightly distracted (baking something else) when I made my ice cream this week.
I infused the honey with lavender, let it sit, finished packing (yes, we are soon on our way to LAX for our flight to Milan TONIGHT!), and came back to finish the ice cream mixture.

I read the recipe as far as adding the second two tablespoons of lavender to the mixture and chilling it. Thinking I was done, i put away my copy of The Perfect Scoop, and went about the rest of my day and evening. The next morning (last Wednesday), I threw the chilled mixture into my ice cream machine. I never strained out those two tablespoons of lavender!

That would explain those pretty purple flecks! I liked the flavor of the ice cream and the creaminess, but those little pieces of lavender REALLY grossed me out. They didn't bother Brad. I took a few spoonfuls and said, "It's like there are BUGS in here!" He kept saying "Pretend they are rosemary". Next time, I guess I will strain them!

Travel safely, enjoy Italy for all of us on this side of the water!
Ciao, bella...

Somehow it is very comforting to see the undisputed queen of being wonderful at everything she does have an itsy-bitsy mistake. You guys have a fabulous time in Italy.

I had to laugh at this. Now we know that kitchen disasters befell even greta cooks like Palmabella!
