Recipe Review: Patricia Wells’ Honey Ice Cream
Ice cream season has officially begun, and we returned to one of our very favorite ice cream recipes last night. It’s also one of the easiest.
We found this recipe a long time ago on Heidi Swanson’s blog. It’s utterly simple – cream, milk, honey, and vanilla bean. We’ve made it several different ways – such simple ingredients allow for experiments and changes. This time around we didn’t have a vanilla bean so we used a teaspoon of high quality vanilla extract, adding it at the end of cooking. We also cooked in two egg yolks, stirring them into the warmed milk and cream until a thermometer just hit 170°F. This gave it just a little extra richness and smoothness. Delicious!
