I made this recipe because it sounded so interesting and tasty. My house smelled amazing as I prepared it. This ice cream is wonderful just as it is with no changes - especially with the Easy Raspberry Sauce. I especially enjoyed it on waffles with fresh raspberries. I will make this any time I want to really impress people without having to work very hard :)
Made the homemade ricotta for this recipe. It was super easy. Put it in the fridge for a few hours. It was hard and dry when I was ready to make the ice cream. I had it in the cheese cloth for 15 minutes longer than specified. That may have been the reason it was hard and dry. Ice cream flavor is RICH and AMAZING!!! The texture of mine was gritty. Either the sugar needed to boil longer or the lavender needed a finer mesh strainer. I'll probably try this again for a special occasion.
