Orange Blossom Honey Ice Cream

Orange Blossom Honey Ice Cream

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • zest of 2 oranges
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange blossom honey
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (juice from 2 oranges)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 tablespoons Grand Marnier, or other orange liqueur (optional)

In a large saucepan, combine the milk, orange zest, sugar and honey.  Bring to a simmer over medium low heat and stir to dissolve the sugar.  Remove from the heat.  Stir in the remaining ingredients.

Pour into a container, cover and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 4 hours or overnight.

Strain mixture to remove the zest, then freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions of your ice cream maker.  Transfer to a container and freeze until firm, 4-6 hours.

Yields about 1 1/2 quarts.
