3/4 cup sugar
2 to 3 Tbsp. honey
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups milk
2 cups whipping cream
1 Tbsp. vanilla
Crushed ice
Rock salt


Step 1 CUSTARD BASE: BEAT eggs, sugar, honey and salt in medium heavy saucepan until blended; stir in milk. COOK over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is just thick enough to coat a metal spoon with a thin film and temperature reaches 160°F, about 15 minutes. Do not allow to boil. REMOVE from heat immediately.
Step 2 COOL quickly: Set pan in larger pan of ice water; stir occasionally and gently for a few minutes to hasten cooling. PRESS piece of plastic wrap onto surface of custard. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, at least 1 hour.
Step 3 ICE CREAM: POUR chilled custard, whipping cream and vanilla into 1-gallon ice cream freezer can. FREEZE according to manufacturer's directions, using 6 parts crushed ice to 1 part rock salt. TRANSFER to freezer containers, allowing head space for expansion; freeze until firm.
