Honey Ice Cream

I love French ice cream, and this recipe tastes like the real thing!   It’s amazingly easy too.

Ingredients

2 vanilla beans
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup honey

Directions

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 (this is essential!)

Remove the vanilla pods, and stir the mixture again to blend. Transfer to an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.
