Creamed-Honey Ice Cream

Makes about 5 cups
February 1999
In this recipe we call for creamed honey, another name for the crystallized, or non-liquid, form of this sweetener.
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup creamed honey
  • In a heavy saucepan bring cream and milk just to a boil. In a bowl whisk together eggs and honey until combined well. Add hot cream mixture to egg mixture in a slow stream, whisking, and pour custard into pan. Cook custard over moderately low heat, stirring constantly, until a thermometer registers 170ºF. (Do not let boil.)
  • Pour custard through a sieve into a clean bowl and cool. Chill custard, its surface covered with plastic wrap, until cold, at least 2 hours, and up to 1 day. Freeze custard in an ice-cream maker. Transfer ice cream to an airtight container and put in freezer to harden. Ice cream may be made 1 week ahead.
