The Spring Hills Farm booth at the Saturday Petaluma farmer’s market currently sells organic lavender ice cream, $1.50 for a prepacked 3-ounce cup of the stuff. While many culinary uses of lavender tend toward the overly aggressive or the coarse, the degree of lavender in Spring Hills’ ice cream is just perfect–the subtle flavoring never overwhelms the sweet cream base. The ice cream has a clean finish, so if there are any emulsifiers at all, they are used sparingly.
The ice cream is also available at Spring Hills Farm proper.
