The idea of making homemade lavender ice cream was published on the Instagram page of the famous Ukrainian chef Andrii Kolisnyk (andreikolesnik).

3. When the milk mixture is ready, set it aside for 10 minutes to allow the lavender flavor to infuse it. But don't overdo it, because lavender can give off a bitterness that is not needed in ice cream.

4. Pour the milk mixture into the egg yolks/sugar mixture and stir constantly to prevent the eggs from boiling over. Then put everything on the fire.
