Lemon Verbena Ice Cream


Fight the Heat..., originally uploaded by ParsecTraveller.

This ice cream, made with lemon verbena leaves, was delicious. I urge any and all gardeners to invest in a lemon verbena plant - it's possibly the best smelling herb I've ever encountered.

The leaves can be used in tea, jams, and many other things...like ice cream.

Your ice cream looks incredible! I'm sure it tastes just as good!
I think my mom had a lemon verbena plant when I was growing up - I loved the smell of it!

I'm a HUGE fan of lemon thyme as well. It's the one herb I keep in the house in a pot all winter. It brightens the flavor of whatever I add it to. I'll have to look into a lemon verbena.
