Living Christmas Tree … Honey Vanilla Ice cream

We've had quite a lot of rain which has been a nuisance for some but not for me! as it's worked a treat on my Christmas Tree.
I'm still thinking about how I'm going to decorate it! anyone got any ideas?



Just before I start my Christmas shopping, yes 'start', a quick recipe!

I haven't forgotten the Honey Ice cream, it's just that my Italian Ice Cream Churner has temporarily given up on me! I will get it fixed hopefully before Christmas and make a christmas ice cream. I wanted to add a photo with the Honey Ice cream but I think that will have to wait.
Here's the recipe.

Honey Vanilla Ice-cream

8 large egg yolks
1/2 cup of honey
3 cups of pouring cream
1 vanilla bean split open  (run a teaspoon down the centre to remove the seeds)

Method
Whisk the egg yolks and the honey together until thick and pale.
Scald the cream with the vanilla seeds and the split vanilla bean. 
Pour the cream slowly onto the egg mixture.
Stir well then tip everything back into the saucepan and cook gently, stirring a little until the mixture thickens slightly, making sure not to over heat and curdle the mixture.
*Remove the saucepan from the heat and leave to cool.
Churn in an ice cream maker then tip into a container and store in the freezer.

*A little tip for those with no time to spare!
 I pour the hot mix into a stainless steal bowl that I have been cooling in freezer to speed up the process.
