So today I extracted the honey from my bee hive and decided I had to celebrate with an appropriate ice cream. Honey rosemary has been on my mind so, in spite of being kind of suspicious of this sort of fancypants flavour, I went for it. Used this recipe from Epicurous: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo... and made it exactly as the recipe says.
Phenomenal. In every way. Subtle, mysterious, delicious. A flavour you'd never be able to identify if you didn't know what it was. Texture was perfect. We are completely hooked. This one has gone directly to the top of the list - maybe tied with the fresh mint and chocolate. But stunningly good. Highly recommended.
Now what to do with the other 36-1/2 lbs of honey....?
