A couple of months ago, I experienced a delicious pine-infused meal and this gave me the idea to make a “Christmas Tree” ice cream. This Pine Ice Cream is made with what I believe to be Jeffrey Pine needles foraged from my neighborhood, and raw Alfalfa Honey from my local farmer’s market.
The result is quite wonderful. The top note is the honey, followed by a gentle and lingering woodsy pine aroma. I also mixed in some honey-toasted almonds for texture. If I had some Pine Liqueur, I would have added this too. MERRY CHRISTMAS, everyone! - Lili x
