More and more lavender farms are popping up all over the South. So with that in mind I share this easy lavender ice cream:
½ cup heavy cream
1½ cups buttermilk
¾ cup sugar
2 teaspoons dried lavender buds
equipment: Ice Cream Maker
In a large bowl, whisk together the cream, buttermilk, and sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the lavender. Cover and refrigerate for 12 hours or longer if you want a stronger lavender flavor.
Strain out the lavender and discard it. Freeze the cream mixture according to your ice cream maker’s instructions.”
