Chocolate Lavender Ice Cream

That’s the special this month, and extra special this weekend, out at Maple View Farms. The flavor is great and surprizing in some very subtle ways. Chocolate lavender who would have thought.


  1. Oooo, thanks for the headsup! That sounds DELICIOUS to me.

    This inspires me to want to make lavender-lemon shortbread cookies, soon…

  2. I had a lavender chocolate bar a little while ago and didn’t really enjoy it, because it basically came off like a soapy chocolate bar. That may well have been a function of the proportions, though, so other flavours in the mix might make it work out better.

    Kristina, there is a big lavender farm up in Hurdle Mills that regularly has a variety of stuff at the Carrboro Farmer’s Market. Including soap.

    Adam, try the ice cream. it’s not soapy at all and subtle. i haven’t had the chocolate bar, but i have had truffles with lavender and they were fine. i can imagine that it’s easy to overdue the lavender tho.
