Chestnut Tree Honey Ice-Cream

Recipe from What's For Lunch, Honey?  

Ingredients

450 g heavy cream
240 ml whole cup
170 g chestnut honey (use your favorite honey)

Method

  1. In saucepan mix all of the ingredients gently until the honey has dissolved.

  2. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, just until tiny bubbles form around the edges of the pan, 4 to 5 minutes.

  3. Remove from the heat and allow to come to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight.

  4. Take out of the refrigerator and stir the mixture again to blend.

  5. Transfer to an ice-cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. Serve as it is or if you prefer, transfer to a box and freeze for a few hours then serve.

Serving tips: I adore serving this ice-cream with berries. The berries I froze last summer are perfect for this. Take a handful and place in a bowl suitable for the microwave. Turn microwave on and warm for just a short period until berries are warm and soft. Pour over the ice-cream - heaven! You can use blueberries, raspberries or blackberries - these were really best with the ice-cream. You do not need a huge amount per serving just a few, as the berries are tart you do not want them to overpower the honey flavor of the ice-cream.
