It turns out perfect if you whisk, 2 or 3 times during the freezing and final frozen stages.

fabulous and so full of flavor. i added a scant tablespoon of pulverized lavendar blossoms before i put it in the ice cream maker and it was incredibly lovely. i will make this again and again, experimenting with other flavorings. guests were licking bowls. no kidding.
