I was having a dinner party and needed to find a simple, good and quick dessert recipe. And what not better than just homemade ice cream that has 4 simple ingredients. Everybody loves home made ice cream and this one sounded fantastic. I came across 101 Cookbooks and there was a recipe in there that I wanted to try. The original recipe calls for Heather Honey but I couldn’t find that. I just had simple Clover Honey that I used instead. This recipe was so simple. Heat all your ingredients and let them steep for an hour. Chill the mixture, and then pour it into your ice cream maker and let it run until your ice cream is the consistency you want. Serve with your favorite simple cookies.
This ice cream is rich and sweet! One of my favorites! I highly recommend trying it out! Delishhh!
Honey Ice Cream Recipe
Yields: 2 cups
Prep Time: 10 minutes | Steep & Chill Time: 2 hours
2 vanilla beans
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup honey
Flatten the vanilla beans and cut them in half lengthwise. With a small spoon, scrape out the seeds. Place the seeds and pods in a large saucepan. Add the cream, milk, and honey. Stir to dissolve the honey. Heat over moderate heat, stirring from time to time, just until tiny bubbles form around the edges of the pan, 3 to 4 minutes.
Remove from the heat and let steep, covered, for 1 hour.
Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.
