vanilla ice cream

For ice cream!!!!!!!

What’s Summer without ice cream?! Freshly baked waffle cones. Creamy goodness running down your hand. An “All American” treat that is everyone’s favorite.

Well, the folks at Tru Bee honey know how to make an ice cream that is perfect for Summer. And without a pinch of sugar, this simple recipe will please all of the screamers!

Honey Vanilla Ice Cream

2 cups milk  {we like 2 percent}

3/4 cup honey {wildflower honey, of course}

dash of salt

2 eggs beaten

2 cups heavy cream

1 tablespoon real vanilla extract

In saucepan, heat milk but don’t burn or “scald” it. Stir in honey and salt. Pour small amount of warm liquid into eggs; return to milk mixture and cook over medium-low heat for 5 minutes or less, stirring constantly. Cool thoroughly. Stir in cream and vanilla. Freeze in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions. Makes about 5 cups.

Serve with drizzled honey and fresh fruit. Cheers!
