My beekeeping friend Lelia inspired me to with all her talk of harvesting to look for more recipes using honey. I came across this beauty. I only wish I had had time to make some shortbread cookies to accompany the honey cream.
Frozen Honey Cream
- 1 3/4 cups cold heavy cream
- 2/3 cup wildflower honey
- 4 large egg yolks
In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, beat heavy cream to stiff peaks, then refrigerate. In a small pot, bring honey to a boil over medium-high and cook 2 minutes. In another medium bowl, using mixer, beat egg yolks until pale yellow. With mixer running, add hot honey in a slow, steady stream. Beat on high until mixture has cooled to room temperature, about 5 minutes. With a rubber spatula, fold in whipped cream. Transfer mixture to a 5-by-10-inch loaf pan. Cover with plastic wrap. Freeze until set, 2 hours (or up to 1 week).

I love this. I can never work our ice cream maker. It was a hand me down and must be on the fritz. Surely it’s not me.
I am not so lucky to have a ice cream maker, on the fritz or not. Maybe one day…
how did i miss this one!!! This recipe is for me! I do not have an icecream maker either. But i have cream and honey!!! c
It would be lovely with some lavendar buds sprinkled on top. Even the teenager will like this one.
