Eggplant Honey Custard

This one’ll make you want to stick your face in the bucket, soaking in the glorious sweetness of honey, soft creaminess of Southern California eggplants with skin as squeaky as a dolphin, and the fatty dense richness of a yolk-y custard ice cream. A dash of freshly microplaned nutmeg helps pull everything together making this flavor pairing surprisingly simple and delicate; without any of the flavors particularly overwhelming the other. Our eggplant comes from Peacock Family Farms in Nipromo, California.
