Machine-free Honey Ice-Cream

Machine-free Honey Ice-cream

A few days ago I discovered this amazing blog The Stone Soup that suggests lots of simple recipes with the minimum of ingredients and equipment, which really appeals to me. And can you imagine - Jules, the author of this blog, possesses the secret of making ice-cream without an ice-cream machine! Isn’t this wonderful? It’s only made with cream and honey. Which means my ice-cream mixture was ready in about 10 minutes, plus about 6 hours for freezing. Or maybe 7. That’s it. I left it in the freezer overnight and it still remained soft and creamy - simply unbelievable! I really like the idea of making 100% natural (well, as natural as store-bought cream can be) ice-cream at home. Until now I’ve only experimented with different kinds of sorbet.

I couldn’t resist decorating my ice-cream with pictachios just as Jules did it - mine were slightly salted and this touch of salt worked great with the sweetness of the honey-flavoured ice-cream and the dried dates that I also used as a garnish.

Machine-free Honey Ice-cream

My ingredients
1/2 cup buckwheat honey
2 1/2 cups cream (35% milk fat)*
Pistachios and dried dates for serving

*Jules used single and double cream (which is 45 to 48% milk fat), but unfortunately we only have “single” cream here

Serves 6-8

Jules’ original recipe

Heat honey on a low heat until runny. Add 1/2 of the cream and stir until smooth.
Whip the remaining cream until soft peaks form and add to the honey&cream mixture. Stir well (I noticed that the whipped cream tended to float to the top so I needed to stir through the mixture really well).
Place the ice-cream mixture in a freeze proof container and freeze for 6-8 hours.
Serve with pistachios and dates or any other way you like.

    The meaning of the phrase “ice cream” varies from one country to another. Phrases such as “frozen custard”, “frozen yogurt”, “sorbet”, “gelato” and others are used to distinguish different varieties and styles. In some countries, such as the United States, the phrase “ice cream” applies only to a specific variety, and most governments regulate the commercial use of the various terms according to the relative quantities of the main ingredients.
