Oh man, these all sound so so good! I can't wait to give them a try. I am actually growing both mint and chamomile in my garden right now, so if I have enough for my teas, I'll dedicate some of the leftovers to making some delicious herbal ice creams! That's so crazy that you can make ice cream with those herbs!
