  1. Heat the milk and lavender in a 3-quart saucepan over low heat until warmed through. Remove from heat, and allow lavender to infuse for about 20 minutes. Remove flowers.
  2. Beat the egg yolks and sugar together in large bowl. Whisk the lavender-infused milk into the egg mixture, then pour it back into the saucepan. Heat the mixture over low heat, whisking constantly, until the mixture thickens and can coat the back of a spoon, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and cool slightly, about 5 minutes. Stir in the heavy cream. Transfer the mixture to a bowl, and chill in refrigerator at least 4 hours.
  3. Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions until it reaches "soft-serve" consistency. Transfer ice cream to a lidded container; cover surface with plastic wrap and seal. For best results, ice cream should be place in the freezer at least 2 hours or overnight.

This was delicious! As lavender isn't in season at the moment I used 1.5 tablespoons of dried lavender which was very subtle. I'll use 2 rounded tablespoons next time.

I added more lavender and it was still very faint flavoring. Excellent.

This is an excellent recipe. I used a teaspoon of dry lavender which I bought in Amazon. I put twice less sugar. The outcome was delicious. We served lavender ice cream in the theme party we hos...

Lavender ice cream sounded horrible to me. But my son brought a container from a specialty store to try. It was so good but then I found out none of the stores carried it anymore. I went online ...
