ice cream experiments

Christina's ice cream in Cambridge, MA has the most wonderful and unusual flavors. I was inspired to replicate their lemon-thyme since we had a bunch of lemons in the house.

So, we were out of sugar, but for some reason have a ridiculous amount of honey, so I thought it'd be a simple substitution. The honey actually changes the consistency of the ice cream quite a bit, so it's a lot softer and almost chewier than it would be normally. It also overwhelmed the thyme flavor, so there's just a bare hint of it. But since it was a very nice flavorful local honey, it added it's own level of floweriness.
