One of our friends stopped me the other day and said she had a herb garden with all sorts of different herbs.

Knowing that we make and eat all sorts of exotic ice cream flavors, she wondered if I would be interested in some of her herbs to make ice cream.

Of course, yes!

I'd heard about all the different ice cream flavors you can make with fresh herbs - but had only tried a couple.

She gave me some sprigs from her plants - and fresh thyme was one of them.

This ice cream recipe produces a strong flavor (however, mine might have ended up a little stronger than yours will because with young kids and a busy household - I made the ice cream base but it sat in our fridge for a day or two before I froze it.

The end result was a unique ice cream flavor. The flavor tastes elegant and classy rather than sweet and spunky like a chocolate chunk ice cream recipe would.

The honey in it makes the ice cream extremely soft and creamy - a wonderful texture.

If you have some extra thyme you're wondering what to do with - you should definitley try this recipe.

Serving Tip: Garnish ice cream with a fresh sprig of thyme!
