A Summertime Favorite: Honey-Lavender Ice Cream

This honey-lavender ice cream recipe is a delicious cure to hot summer afternoons.

3 cups organic local cherries
4 cups organic heavy cream
¾ cup organic sugar
4 egg yolks
4 tbsp. organic vanilla
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. organic cinnamon

Pit and coarsely chop cherries and set aside.  In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat cream and sugar stirring often until sugar is dissolved and the mixture is hot.  In a mixing bowl start whisking the egg yolks, take one cup of the hot mixture and slowly pour into the egg yolks and keep whisking.  When the egg yolk mixture is smooth pour it into hot mixture in saucepan.  Whisk constantly.  Cook over medium heat and stir constantly until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.  Never let the mixture come to a boil.  Next, pour mixture into a bowl and stir in vanilla, lemon juice and cinnamon.  Cover and chill for about 30 minutes.  Freeze mixture in ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.  When ice cream stiffens, a few minutes before it is done, add cherries to the ice cream.
