      For the jam:

    1. Wash and drain the blueberries, removing any stalks. Combine the blueberries with the honey in a saucepan over a medium heat and allow to simmer and thicken. Add the vanilla, lavender, salt and mix well. Continue to simmer over a low heat for 45 minutes until the fruit has almost completely broken down and resembles a chunky jam. Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl to chill in the fridge.
    2. For the ice cream:

    3. Meanwhile, whisk the coconut milk, honey and nutmeg together and pour into an ice cream maker. Churn in the ice cream maker until thickened, then add the chilled jam. Churn until the jam is well mixed into the ice cream. Serve frozen.
