Lavender Honey Crème Brûlée

Lavender Honey Crème Brûlée

I love sweet things, desserts, & Creme Brulee, so here is a Lavender Honey Creme Brulee recipe using the wonderful products from our friends at Frolicking Deer Lavender Farms.  Frolicking Deer’s lavender products come from their farm in West Central New Mexico, and the lavender honey they produce is simply to die for! Please to enjoy!

Ingredients:

2 1/4 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 tablespoons Culinary Lavender
8 egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar, plus about 4 tablespoons sugar for sprinkling
2 tablespoons Lavender Honey

Directions:

Place the cream and milk in a saucepan and add the lavender. Bring to a boil and turn off the heat. Let the lavender steep for about 15 minutes or until the milk has a lavender flavor. Whisk the egg yolks, the 1/2 cup sugar, and the Lavender Honey in a separate bowl until smooth. Whisk into the lavender cream mixture. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve and skim off any foam. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

Preheat oven to 350F. Pour the mixture into about 6 ramekins. Set the ramekins in a baking pan and add enough hot water to reach halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Cover the baking pan with foil and place in the oven. Bake for roughly 40 minutes or until set. Remove the baking pan from the oven and allow the ramekins to cool for around 5 minutes. Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.

To caramelize the top of your Creme Brulee sprinkle some sugar on top & then with either with a Kitchen Culinary Torch or in your broiler, let it cook for a minute or so or until there is some caramelization or browning of the sugar on top, then sprinkle a little more Culinary Lavender on top. Serve & enjoy!
