|roses from ana's garden ~2012~|
1 cup creamy whipping cream
1 cup of half - and - half
Petals of four scented roses
2 egg yolks, no egg whites required in this recipe
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract or if you can vanilla bean
2 teaspoons honey
Now, in a saucepan, heat the creamy cream, half-and-half, and rose petals almost to a boil but not quite. Removing your yummy mixture before it hits its boiling point. So be prepared as burnt milk is something to cry over! Then cover and let sit until it cools.
Then in a large mixing bowl, beat together egg yokes, sugar, vanilla, and honey, it's always best to do this to your favorite tune, until creamy! Now strain the rose-flavored cream mixture into the egg mixture and gently stir. Now we will pour into a double boiler and cook until slightly thickened, but again beware as not to let it boil.
And finally chill your custard-like mixture, and put it in the frig. This recipe makes 4-6 tasty servings!
