Lavender-Scented Strawberries with Honey Cream
I have lavender in my yard and wanted to try some lavender desserts. This one ended up being a winner!
|1/2 teaspoon||dried lavender (such as mccormick)|
|1/2 teaspoon||unflavored gelatin|
|3||large egg yolk|
|1 (6-ounce) container||2% greek-style plain yogurt|
|2 cups||quartered strawberries|
Bring first 3 ingredients to a boil in a small saucepan; cook 1 minute or until sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; let stand 10 minutes. Strain syrup through a sieve into a small bowl; discard solids. Chill.
Sprinkle gelatin over 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl. Let stand 1 minute or until gelatin dissolves.
Combine honey, cornstarch, salt, and egg yolks in a medium bowl; stir well with a whisk.
Heat milk over medium-high heat in a small heavy saucepan to 180° or until tiny bubbles form around edge (do not boil). Gradually add hot milk to egg mixture, stirring constantly with a whisk. Return milk mixture to pan. Cook over medium heat until thick and bubbly (about 2 minutes), stirring constantly. Remove from heat; add gelatin mixture, stirring well. Pour milk mixture into a bowl; stir occasionally until cool but not set (about 20 minutes). Stir in yogurt. Spoon 1/4 cup yogurt mixture into each of 8 dessert glasses or bowls. Cover and chill at least 2 hours.
Top each serving with 1/4 cup strawberries, and drizzle with 2 teaspoons syrup.
