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).
