This recipe for our wonderfully tasty honey and lavender ice cream is one of the simplest and best recipes that we have. We love to make it with local honey, when we can, since then you get to support a small business as you cook a treat: that makes the ice cream even sweeter!
If you’re making this with kids, it might be a great idea to go out and look for some native lavender. It is principally a Mediterranean plant but it has been taken far and wide around the world, leading to a truly ubiquitous plant.
Harvesting some of the lavender out in your local area can be great to help kids understand where some of their favorite flavors come from! We wouldn’t recommend cooking with it, though, as it may have been treated with fertilizers and pesticides that would be terrible for someone to eat. Instead, treat it as a learning experience!
