Bake the Book: Goat Cheese Nasturtium Ice Cream
Flowers? In ice cream? Try it. Cooking With Flowers blends tart goat cheese and piquant nasturtiums for a brightly white ice cream flecked with orange.
Tips: This recipe requires you temper eggs, which isn't foolproof, but the more thoroughly you beat the egg yolks, and the slower you mix the warm milk in, the better off you'll be. Make sure all ingredients are at least room temperature before beginning. Trying to temper fridge-cold egg yolks rarely goes well.
Tweaks: The best goat cheese for this ice cream is the soft, creamy kind, usually sold in logs or little round pats.
