I love the idea of putting a meal on the table by using ingredients we grew fresh on the homestead. So many desserts incorporate the flour, which is hard to grow on a small scale. Pots de creme are a traditional dessert that’s naturally gluten-free and can be made using ingredients grown right in our backyard.
Honey, eggs, cream, and lavender come together beautifully for these homemade honey lavender pots de creme.
Pots de creme are a lot like creme brule, but instead of creating a sugar crust with a kitchen blow torch they have a soft pudding-like texture. The tiny ceramic lid keeps the pudding from drying out in the oven.
I used these beautiful ceramic pots de creme pots. With so many eggs on our homestead, we make pots de creme several times a month, so these little pots see a lot of use.
Pots de creme can also be made in any oven safe ramekin, covered in aluminum foil to keep the contents moist during the cooking process.

Honey Lavender Pots de Creme
how ahead do you think you could get away making these ?
I would say maybe the night before, refrigerated. I haven’t tried making them ahead, but it may be worth testing whether or not they freeze well.
