Herbs and flowers for flavor and color.
Who wouldn’t love a lick of these? Rose Ice Cream, Lemon Ice Cream and, in the background, Lavender Ice Cream.
Lemon juice and peel and two lemon-flavored herbs combine in this cool, light, and lemony ice cream, which is neither too sweet nor too tart. I like to serve it in hollowed-out lemons topped with fresh lemon balm sprigs. (For zest use a potato peeler to remove only the yellow portion of the lemon peel, leaving the bitter white layer behind.)
