“From Charlie Trotter's Restaurant, Chicago, Illinois via "The minty and woodsy flavor of rosemary shines in this easy ice cream sweetened with honey." I've got a ginormous rosemary bush out back that is ready for a trim! Prep time includes chilling time. Cook time does not include freezing in ice cream maker. Makes enough custard for 2 batches of ice cream using my little Cuisinart machine.”
