Thyme Ice Cream

Chuck Kirkpatrick | Oct 2, 2001 11:29 AM

I experimented by making some thyme ice cream. I steeped six packed tsp of fresh thyme with honey in water, added it to the custard for infusion. Made about a quart.
My wife had low expectations and likes it ok. I had higher hopes and am disappointed. When I taste it, this goes through my mind: "vegetable", and that's not what I want in ice cream. Then, my mind engages with my palate and says "thyme", but it's too late. It just doesn't mix. If I were to try it again, I would add lemon zest.

Next: Pumpkin Ice Cream
